My Students

I teach at an elementary school in Semmes, AL. Semmes was recently annexed from the city of Mobile, AL (The Port City and birthplace of Mardi Gras) and is an "up and coming" small city in the Deep South. What was a very rural area just a couple decades ago is now booming with growth including many larger subdivisions. So we have plenty of students!

These students love to use technology.

I teach Reading, Language Arts, and Alabama History to 40 4th-grade students. Technology motivates them to learn and fosters critical thinking skills. Many of them do not have access to technology at home. We are a "bring your own device" school and roughly 35-40% of my students have a device that they are able to bring to school and use in the classroom. I need devices that the other students can use in my classroom to participate in technology-based lessons.

Allentown is not a Title I school, so we do not receive the funding for such needs that other schools do. We are passionate about implementing technology and doing project-based learning.

My Project

Our class would like to dive into a study on the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and we need resources to do so! This book will be perfect to begin our study. We need a class set (22) so that each student may have a copy to read along as we do a whole group read aloud and discuss the childhood of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the subsequent impact on his work towards civil rights as an adult. I am sure that learning about and relating to Dr. King will inspire my students to change their world for the better, too!
