My Students

My students are excited about learning, and I want them to keep it going with technology to broaden their knowledge and experiences. A typical day in my classroom involves a lot of research. The students are actively engaged in many different lessons throughout the day that correspond to their grade level. The minds of my students crave knowledge.

They want to know everything they can, and I want to give it to them.

I need partners like you to make it happen! Worrying about food, money, transportation, and clothing are adult worries, yet many of the students at my school face these problems each day. In spite of the challenges they face, my students constantly rise to the occasion and frequently blow me away with their ability to learn. Some have and some do not. It is my job to level the playing field so that all have a chance to be successful.

My Project

The students will be using the Chromebooks to research different topics, type papers for their projects, get extra practice on Math they are struggling with, and so many other ways. The students will also learn how to type faster, learn how to research a topic correctly, and also know what an accredited source is. They will continue to learn and grow with knowledge from the world.

Donations to this project will improve our classroom very much.

The students currently have no chromebooks or any form of technology in the classroom to use. This will benefit them by allowing technology in our classroom and knowledge into their brains.
