My Students

Being a teacher in a low income area, my students face a variety of difficulties. They rely on schools to be their home away from home with less distress. In our classroom, it's my goal to make things as interesting, meaningful, fun, exciting, successful and less complicated for them. They do not like the usual textbook learning, but more hands-on learning such as drawing, reading books, interacting in group projects, making their own creations, and more. They love being given the ability to do things that challenge their minds. Having this kind of motivation in the class brings inspiration to the classroom environment. Students, no matter how much some show it and others don't, want to be successful on some level. They want to know that they can do anything by putting their mind to it. I want them to create a love for learning and as their teacher I will do anything to help them achieve their goals and give them any opportunities for success.

My Project

This project will help fund an iPad for our classroom use. With this iPad, I will be able to create engaging lessons for my students and present them WIRELESSLY from anywhere in the room. I will no longer be attached to the front of the room.

This will allow my students to show their work from anywhere around the room.I can take pictures and display their work to the front board.

I can make videos of my lessons for students to watch if they were absent or need extra help! This iPad will make our classroom run smoothly and efficiently!
