My Students

I am a teacher in a Title I school where over 75% of our students qualify for free and reduced-priced lunches. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Many face a home life without both parents. Because we live in such a rural area, in some cases, the parent/parents are unable to find full-time employment.

Many of my students do not have access to technology at home to take advantage of the learning opportunities online, so they have to depend on what we can provide for them at school.

My students are bright and eager to learn about and explore the world around them, but many will not be able to enjoy the "typical" life experiences of children their age because of their socioeconomic status. I do the best that I can to provide them with engaging learning activities, but with declining budgets and out of date resources it is becoming more difficult to do.

These children are our future and I don't want their circumstances to define who they are and what they are capable of accomplishing in life!

My Project

My students need this Chromebook to access engaging websites to help them learn new skills and practice using the skills they have learned. There are so many engaging websites and games out there!

I recently introduced them to a fun and engaging website to practice the math skills that we have learned this year but then realized that the technology we do have is so out of date that they could not take advantage of this.

They were so disappointed.

I would like to be able to introduce my students to these rich resources without having to worry about whether or not they can use them because of the lack of up to date technology available for their use.
