My Students

I have the privilege of teaching 31 amazing fourth graders. My students attend a Title One school and face many hardships. My students, like many others, had to stop attending school and continue their learning via distance learning. It hasn't been easy to adjust, since their world has basically turned upside down.

Even though in-person school as concluded for the year, my students are eager to learn through distance learning.

The COVID-19 pandemic has stopped them from attending school physically and has caused them to break out of their daily routines. My goal is to try to bring back some normalcy and routines from our classroom into their lives again.

My Project

We are requesting a document camera in order to keep my students and I connected while our school remains closed during the COVID19 pandemic that is currently afflicting the world. The document camera will be used to record videos and scan pages from books that students will need to continue their education at home.

Most importantly, the document camera will help me deliver real-time instruction to my students so they can feel as if they were in the classroom.

My students come to our virtual meetings prepared with questions. It has been a struggle to model math problems without an adequate document camera. I want to provide them the same education even if it is from the comfort of our homes instead of our classrooms.
