My Students

Our ESL students are amazing! They come from a variety of cultural backgrounds, speaking various languages. We have students from Congo, Mexico, Nepal, and Somalia, just to name a few of the countries. Many of our students live with extended family members in small apartments. They often do not have the opportunities to enjoy the benefits of technology in their home environments. Our school is a great place for them to come together and learn using this technology. They are excited to be at school and love to learn. They are absolutely fascinated by computers, iPads, tablets, and the Smartboard. All technology excites them! They are eager to learn the English language and would love the opportunity to have the resources to practice here in our classroom.

My Project

English Language Learners love to use Chromebooks to learn English. These Chromebooks will help our students learn English faster and more efficiently. They will be exposed to new English vocabulary and have be able to listen to native English speakers in a variety of educational videos. They love using Epic and Pebble Go whenever we have a chance.

Each student will have the opportunity to use technology to assist in learning new vocabulary and listen to video clips in English.

This will help them to learn English faster than ever before!

Chromebooks are a great tool for our students who have not been exposed to English yet and will have the opportunity to feel more comfortable using these devices. What a fun and engaging way to learn! Our students will be thrilled!
