My Students

The way students learn in today's world is changing drastically. Technology has allowed educators to open doors to student learning that are engaging and full of possibility.

In one of the largest elementary schools in New York, and in the country, resources that promote educational success are limited.

My class consists of 31 first grade students. They are classified as ELL's (English Language Learners- their native language is not English). Located in Corona Queens, New York, the majority of the population of my class, and the school is mostly Hispanic and thus ELL's.

Please help my students have access to the tools that will help them succeed, and the technology they are held accountable to use, yet aren't provided with.

My Project

My school pays for access to many amazing educational programs and websites that are specifically designed to target students weaknesses and strengthen their existing abilities. Students are required to use these programs in addition to the curriculum units.

Due to lack of funding, my students have limited access to educational programs because 3rd, 4th, and 5th, grade are given technology priority (NY state testing grades).

Working in a Title 1 school, in a low-income community, parents often do not have the resources for their children to access these programs at home.

In first grade, building foundational skills required for reading, math, and language success is critical. Access to outstanding early childhood education is instrumental to a child’s development. Please help give my students the tools and technology they need in order to achieve educational success.
