My Students

I am a highly motivated Second-grade teacher in an inner-city Title I school. My students are from various ethnic backgrounds, receiving federally funded free breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. A large majority of my students come from non-English speaking families. My classroom also includes one special education student who is mainstreamed in the regular ed population most of the day.

Curious, silly, chatty, creative and a hunger for learning--that's how I would describe my students.

Second grade is a year of growth for students socially, emotionally, and especially academically. My students are very enthusiastic learners and love reading and investigating themselves on the computer. Unfortunately, with budget cuts and no funding, teachers are spending their own money to get their students the supplies they need for success.

My Project

With the generosity of past donors and very little district support, I have been able to develop the beginning of a classroom set of Chromebooks. But it would be most beneficial to my students if they were all able to each have their own Chromebook for daily use.

Many of my students need intervention in reading and math.

By using the district approved programs on the Chromebooks daily, students will develop confidence and begin to show growth in their areas of weakness.

Our new STEM science program in innovative and engaging. But without a book for each student successful implementation of this program can be done on the chrome book. Students can also use the Chromebooks during my daily station rotation, where students can work independently on teacher-selected math and reading programs to improve fact fluency and reading comprehension.
