My Students

When I think about going to school, I think about tons of textbooks, hours of research in the library and a lot of frustration from not actually finding what I need. My goal this year is to provide my students with anything and everything they will need to be successful. The unfortunate part is that these students do not have the resources available to them at home or at school to keep up with today’s society.

Our students come from low-income households that require them to take on a lot more than any eight-year-old should have to.

Because of the daily struggles my students face, I want them to feel like the only thing they have to worry about is being the best student they can be. I want them to feel like they are ready for anything and everything that is thrown at them. I don't want them to look back and feel like their elementary years were frustrating and unfair because the expectations were too high to reach.

My Project

This computer will help my students learn even more about computers. Every year, my students come in wanting to learn about the online world. Unfortunately, throughout the year we share our computers with other grades to prepare for testing. I am hoping to get this laptop for my students and keep it in the room so it is constantly available to them without interruption.

This computer is HDMI capable, so it will hook up to my projector and allow students to share some of the work they are doing such as presentations, notepads and videos.

I know my students could benefit from this laptop, and I hope it will keep them engaged in learning.
