My Students

Thank you for taking the time to look at the potential to help me educate my English Language Learners (ELLs.) I am a Middle School teacher in Prince George's County. My students' language skills range from having very limited English all the way through higher levels where they are learning grade-level vocabulary and content with ELL support. Some of my students are refugees who came to the U.S. for the chance for the best education. Other students were born in the U.S. and raised in homes where another language is spoken. My students are very special to be learning more than one language! They deserve the best and appreciate any help towards giving them the best “home away from home” learning environment.

My Project

With this new e-Reader, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level with technology that appeals to them. They will be able to select books that they want to read on their level without anyone judging their book cover. The Kindle brings independence and pride to the love for reading. My students are lovers of reading who want to learn everything that they can through reading. They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading.
