My Students

Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world. - Nelson Mandela

My students love to come to class because it is exciting to learn!

Collaborating with their peers on projects about world exploration, engineering design, and real world math is engaging. However, they need the ability to use technology for research and the added challenge of creating multi-media presentations. The students at our school are special! They care about each other and the community. They know that school is important and they work hard to learn. Our students come from middle America. Most of our students are children of immigrants who are working hard to create a better life for their families. These families value education and dream of seeing their children go on to be the doctors and scientists of tomorrow. Our school is a small suburban school with a close family feel. Students, parents, and teachers all work together to support community activities in the school.

My Project

My students are hard-working and enjoy learning! They are eager to try new activities and excited by the world's possibilities. They are just beginning to be exposed to technology in their homes and are eager to put it to use. Every day they come to school ready to learn in new and creative ways. They have grand ideas for making movies of their reader's theater, creating science report slide shows with embedded video clips of their experiments, and using websites to enhance their in-class research. Currently, we share 5 working desktop computers. They use these computers for writing, research, reading tests, creating reports, and keyboarding practice. Many stay in for recess/ lunch to get time on our classroom computers because they do not have a working computer at home. The Common Core curriculum and the modern world require us to teach students how to use technology fluently. Please help!

Acquiring 5 Kindle Fire's for our 5th grade class will make a huge difference in my student's ability to become 21st Century learners.

Students will be able to spend small group time collaborating on shared research and multimedia productions. It will allow us to begin to prepare our students for the technological demands of middle school. We and our students will be very grateful for the added opportunities these tablets will bring to our program.
