My Students

My classroom consist of 26 enthusiastic, creative , energetic , passionate and most of all , how curious about everything they are learning daily. My entire class are English language learners and 20% are diverse learners. My students come from a variety of background and truly represent a "Melting Pot". I have students from all over the world such as Vietnam, Africa, Bulgaria, Greece, Bosnia, Pakistan and the list goes on. They learn about each other daily. Many of our students also come from low income households and do not have reliable access to computers or internet outside of the school.

Technology is essential in providing my students into the 21st century and allowing them to expand their knowledge and enhance thier learning in the classroom.

Your donations will help my student's imagination and dreams come true and move into the 21st century and to keep their curiosity growing.

My Project

These Chrome books for my students would be an addition to my classroom. Our school is fortunate enough to have one cart that is shared among eight classrooms at a set time and day .I would like to create a tech center and give my students the opportunity to explore and enhance their learning to the next level everyday and in every subject from researching their culture in Social Studies to exploring Science investigation in Science. Utilizing all the educational resources that is provided to my students daily. It is so important at this grade and stage in their learning because they are moving independently and absorbing so much like a sponge and growing up so quickly. With the right tools we have placed in the classroom will allow my students to do just that.

Technology is such an important part of the 21st century and the use of Chrome books in the classroom will give them the opportunity to show how tech savvy they can become.

Please help my class purchased three new Chrome books to have their dreams come true and have our own tech center in the classroom that they can call their very own and show their true skills.
