My Students

My sixth-grade students are amazing this year! I am working on an amazing team with four amazing teachers. LM School is also known as the Career and College Readiness Academy. Our goal is to get students ready for a career or college. Our students come from diverse backgrounds in the inner city of Canton, OH. Nearly all of our students are below the poverty level and qualify for free or reduced lunch. There has been an increase in the number of violent crimes, gang activity and youth suicide in the past year in the city of Canton and Stark County.

Within the four walls of my classroom, I want my students to be able to overcome the obstacles around them in the community.

I want to be the safety net. I want their learning environment to be encouraging, challenging, safe and loving.

My Project

Our team of 125 students shares one laptop cart among 5 teachers. Students get to use computers for learning only once a week in my science class. I am requesting 8 Chromebooks so that two of my cooperative learning groups would be able to have access to technology on a daily basis.

By having even just 8 computers available to students in my class, I can increase their access to technology to a daily basis instead of once a week.

With such an emphasis in our world on science, technology, engineering and math, I can better prepare my students for their future career or college by just simply placing laptop computers in their hands more often. It seems like a simple thing, and it has been a frustration and limitation on the way I would like my students to learn.
