My Students

A new school year is getting closer and I have some very big plans for my students this year! I teach at MHS in rural Marion, SC. Many of my students come from low-income backgrounds and lack the basic supplies needed for school. Therefore, I would love to be able to provide extra supplies and incorporate more technology into our classroom.

Currently, my students lack access to technology, which is increasingly important in today's society.

I would really LOVE to have a classroom set of Fire tablets for my students to do group research. Our school has to share sets of laptops and it is not always guaranteed that they or the labs will be available. Studies have shown that having access to technology increases chances of future success by a factor of three. Thank you so much for your generosity and looking out for my students!

My Project

Instant access to the internet and resources will help my students build their research skills! Our new classroom set of Kindle Fire tablets will help students instantly access the materials that they may need to adequately comprehend social studies data and historical sources.

Analyzing primary and secondary sources is a major part of social studies research.

Through the use of the Kindle Fire tablets, students can remain updated with current events and accurately research historical events. Adding technology to our classroom will give my lessons a greater impact and help students visually connect with hands-on​ learning through the use of technology.
