My Students

Our school has about 300 students who study from Pre-K to 5th grade. Most of them are African American children and Hispanic children. Most of them come from low-income families. They are nice and respectful when they interact with other people. They smile at people when they meet people in the morning. Some of them are struggling in math and English, but they work very hard to overcome the challenges. It is my pleasure to be their teacher in the school this year.

My Project

Many 3rd-grade students are African American and Hispanic students who live in a low-income environment. They suffer from an economic disadvantage because they come from low-income families. They don't have computers and Internet access at home. About 30 students are in the class, but there are only 5 iPads available for the students. Many of the students lose their online learning time because of the lack of iPads. They need technology to support their learning. They could use the iPad to complete iMove, Myon, iReady, and Bookflix assignments. They can select more resources on the Internet when they learn new subjects.
