My Students

My students are a unique group of students. As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Every student has free lunch or reduced-price lunch. Many of them are from homes where there is only one parent present. They come to school every day with bright smiles and courage in spite of the challenges they wake up to and the circumstance they had to face the night before. They know that the classroom is a safe and friendly place. My students have a love and excitement for math. They are eager to learn. They strive for excellence.

My Project

This iPad that I am requesting will help me to enhance my students online learning experience with me. I will use the iPad to teach my students through the remainder of the school year. My students will be able to see me and my anchor charts better. The laptop that I have now freezes and shuts off during instruction. I am not allowed to go into my classroom because of the pandemic to retrieve a better laptop. I am asking to for the iPad and keyboard so I will be able to teach successfully and not add more stress because of outdated technology.
