My Students

My students want more opportunities to become more technologically savvy! They come to school ready to learn each and everyday despite the circumstances that I cannot imagine going through at such a young age. I have never seen students who are so willing to share with one another. They are always willing to help out a friend however they can and they make me want to be a better person.

They are a community of learners who strive to have a growth mindset.

Many of my students already speak 2 languages and are working on mastering how to read on their grade level and writing the English language. Our school is currently a D school but we all know we can continue to improve, especially with the right tools!

My Project

Having Chromebooks would give students more time to become technologically savvy in our rapidly changing world. Chromebooks would allow students to practice acquiring English at a more rapid pace through online language programs, typing skills, researching skills and access to online individualized interventions.

Many of my students do not have reliable access to online resources our school district provides.

Most parents can only afford to buy a small tablet for home use and even then, may not have internet access in the home. This is one reason why my students need as much time as possible to access technology. Another reason is majority of my students are very limited in the amount of help they can receive at home. More online intervention time at school would help bridge this gap.
