My Students

Each day 152 sixth graders walk through my door to learn about the world around them. We live in a rural area in southwest Missouri and many of my students don't realize how big our world really is.

I teach at a Title I school in Missouri where 64% of our students receive free or reduced lunch.

I also have many students who deal with learning disabilities or come from homes with no support. Despite any setbacks, my students love learning!

My Project

Every year I work hard to find new and engaging ways to teach my students geography. I search for new ideas, videos, lessons, and technology that will help me show them cultures and countries all around them. I am limited with what I can use to teach and what they can use to show their learning because of our lack of technology.

If I had tablets for my students we could explore places all over the world right from our classroom.

I would be able to let them create videos, audio clips, presentations, and more if they had access to technology every day. By donating to my project you will allow my students to discover a world outside our classroom without ever leaving. I believe this will help to engage my students and increase their learning.
