My Students

"Dream how technology can not only improve education but also transfer what we think of education." -U.S Secretary of Education Rod Paige

The school is currently a Title I, turnaround school, with a prominently Hispanic population, with a majority living in poverty.

Since these students are living in poverty, they view school as their support system, safety net, and guidance that assists him or her further their education. All students are thankful for every opportunity the school provides them such as; being able to use technology to learn from and focus on a research topic.

My Project

Students will use ear-buds to successfully complete a one-on-one intervention on an iPad/computer program called iReady. As the expectation for student standards progress, this program will focus on assisting students at accomplishing educational gaps or barriers that the child is experiencing. Using ear-buds offer a one-on-one opportunity, and allows the program to appropriately work with a student a his or her instructional level.

These donations will improve my classroom because it will allow students to work on an engaging computer program at the child's instructional level.

As the world today becomes more technological, these students that are living in poverty need an opportunity to engage with current technological trends. Allowing these students to engage in current technological trends, not only benefits the child educationally, but prepares the for the world we live in today.
