My Students

"Are you ready for a GREAT day Tigers?" is what I always ask my first-grade students every day. They always answer with a resounding, "Yes we are!" as they enter my class with smiles on their tiny faces.

Most of our students and their families were affected by Hurricane Irma's destruction, and now we have started welcoming students displaced by Hurricane Maria.

Because many of them come from homes that were affected by Hurricanes Maria and Irma, basic amenities that they need to prosper and succeed, are not readily available to them.

Even though we have to cater for and adapt to such a diverse range of learning needs, we strongly believe that all children will learn if given the right tools and technology. As their first-grade teacher, my main objective is to enhance and improve their young learning experiences, especially when it pertains to their learning environment.

My Project

I teach first-grade at a Head Start through 5th-grade school in North Miami. Most of my students are high-poverty and have limited technology at home.

After Hurricane Irma, the financial situation for most of our students became even worse, and recently, we started welcoming students displaced by Hurricane Maria.

For most of our students, Internet access and the use of computers are a luxury they do not have at home.

As we are embarking to be designated officially a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) school, technology has now infiltrated every aspect of how our classes are taught. After Hurricanes Maria and Irma struck, most students came back with fewer supplies and less access to the tools they need to be successful. Even with limited resources, using technology in my classroom has proved to be quite a success as the students learn quickly, discover and enjoy every lesson.

I am requesting two HP Chromebook computers which will be used for STEAM activities. My students now need to experience actually utilizing technology on a personal "one on one" basis, to enhance their language skills as well as computer skills. Currently, my classroom is very limited in terms of technology/computers. In fact, there is only a teacher's workstation and a few outdated computers in my classroom. We are aiming to become a STEAM school in the upcoming school year and having our students get direct access to technology will prepare them.
