My Students

I work in a school that is primarily in poverty. I work with the higher ability students. They are capable of achieving so much! Unfortunately, our school doesn't always have the funding to provide exactly what is needed when enriching these students.

My students deserve the best that school has to offer.

They are such nice kids and want to learn everything possible. They have the ability to achieve​ so much in their lives. I want to help as much as I can!

My Project

My students are students that want to learn and enjoy learning. They are truly special kids! I want to expose them to all the technology they may not receive in their regular education classrooms. I want to focus on their special needs to push their learning to new heights. These Chromebooks will be incorporated in our everyday use.

My students would benefit using Chromebooks for research projects that we will present for their parents, coding, virtual reality to learn about places we may not ever be able to see, writing, competitions to show off their skills, and so much more!
