My Students

Do you remember the first time you were introduced to a computer and the excitement of technology? If you are anything like me, I didn't want to walk away and I couldn't wait to have more time to explore. My students share that excitement everyday they get to infuse technology into their learning.

The students in my classes truly enjoy learning and get excited when they get to incorporate technology into their learning.

The school is a public magnet middle school in Miami, Florida. The students I teach are very diverse and come from different socio-economic backgrounds. The majority of these students are bilingual and quite a few have parents at home that speak little to no English. Some of my students spend over an hour on the school bus to get to school, but still come in with a smile on their face and a desire to learn.

My Project

We are requesting four Dell Inspirion laptops. Through the use of computers, my students are able to navigate through all aspects of the curriculum in the courses I teach. It gives them opportunities to work both independently and in group settings. Technology based extended projects allows them to have choices and gives them ownership for their learning.

By donating to my project, you will provide my students access to reliable computers which will allow them to reach their technological potential.

This technology will allow the students to explore great online resources such as iCivcs and I-Ready

Having access to computers makes the learning process engaging and enjoyable to them. Which ultimately allows them to let their creativity flow by infusing technology into projects that involve computers.
