My Students

My students all and very creative and artistic. This year I was blessed with kind-hearted students who always look out for each other. My students all receive 100% free lunch. They come from very humble homes. The majority of the students live in multiple-family housing.

Since March 16, 2020, my students began to experience a new unknown world.

Because of the pandemic, our students are the most affected because of their living situations. We have just begun learning at home and my students are in great need of technology so I can connect with them daily and help them in any way possible. I am committed to supporting my students to continue their learning and reduce the impact of school closures on their educational, social, and emotional progress.

My Project

Please help me have my students connected to distance learning. The tablets will allow my students to learn the important lesson taught during our Zoom meetings. My students are already at a disadvantage by their low income and ELD levels. When I connect with students that have technology, I can see how motivated they are to continue learning through these difficult times. Watching their faces lit up when they see me and their friends is priceless.

Technology is the power and future for our students.

Learning online and sending them assignments via Google classroom is a key to their success.
