My Students

I teach kindergarten in a remote school in Lanai City, HI. Our students don't have access to many things other kids are exposed to or have access to daily.

Just walking through Target, Walmart or Best Buy and seeing the technology on the shelves is something my students don't have easily accessible.

We don't have access to any of those things on the island so what some families bring into the home tech-wise​ is limited, what we can expose them to in school may be all they will know before entering our tech world as adults. Our school is 100% free lunch and serves a large number of low-income households. Regardless of the struggles some of my students endure, they all come to school with a willingness and passion to learn. I'm impressed by their creativity and positive attitudes. I love their energy and interest in wanting to learn about the world around them. I recognize what they lack is also a benefit as my students are rich in many other things because of where they live. I feel it's important for my students to know they can accomplish anything. It's my job to model how to reach goals.

My Project

My students live in a very remote area so they're not exposed to things many other students have access to daily. I feel it's important to expose our students to technology to keep them current and competitive academically to succeed in an increasingly digital world. Last year, I was able to bring a smartboard into our classroom and students became instantly engaged in our academic curriculum and elevated their learning. I would like to continue to elevate student engagement by exposing them to more technology to enhance their opportunities and provide a variety of ways of teaching to reach all students. Each student needs to be met at their skill level and having technology makes that opportunity more accessible. The award-winning OSMO programs will transform how students learn. It will help build their ELA skills, math skills, problem-solving, social-emotional learning, language and so much more. Your help in funding this project will give students the opportunity to rotate to the Osmo center at least once a day and will also have the option to use during free-choice​ time, which I believe will be the most requested activity during free choice.
