My Students

I work at a Title I school in a very low-income area in Las Vegas, Nevada. Unfortunately, too many students are homeless (living in cars, shelters, or on the streets). Many students come to school wearing the same clothes all week. Eighty-five percent of our students receive free lunches, all students are provided with free breakfast, and some students qualify to receive bags of food over the weekend, to feed them and their families. My school's diverse population of students come from all over the world and speak a variety of different languages. In fact, many students come to my school hearing English for the first time. Since my students are very underprivileged, they usually do not have access to technology at home.

It doesn't matter what they are wearing or where they slept the night before; when my students walk through my classroom door, they are greeted with a smile and enter a new world where anything is possible.

Despite so many hardships, my students are excited about school and eager to learn. I have a passion for teaching and they have a passion for learning! Coming to work doesn't feel like work at all!

My Project

Technology is an important learning device in our classroom. Students are learning how to research, create presentations, and navigate the internet. There are numerous educational games that engage students while providing learning experiences. Teaching students the fundamentals of technology will enhance their learning experience and prepare them for the outside world.

Chromebooks will make a difference in my students' learning.

Technology expands the learning possibilities in my classroom. It is difficult to provide students with technology if it is not easily accessible. Having the Chromebooks in my classroom will offer more learning opportunities for my students. The opportunities are endless!
