My Students

Our school is on the central coast of California. It's a beautiful area and there are many expensive areas nearby. But my school doesn't serve the expensive areas. My families are in the lower socio-economic demographic. The kids are great, and our families work hard. Many of our families work in agriculture, picking strawberries and working in the fields tending celery, kale, broccoli, cauliflower and other row crops. Quite a few of the students in my class speak English as a second language.

These students are wonderful to work with.

They love school! The families support our school, some parents come in the classroom every day, but they aren't really able to support it financially.

My Project

TK, or Transitional Kindergarten, is like a pre-kindergarten for 4 year olds. They love to learn visually, but navigating a computer is a bit hard for many of them. They love many on-line resources like "Go-Noodle", You-tube videos of "Zoophonics" and a lot of our curriculum has exciting videos you can only access on-line.

Currently, my 15 students crowd around a projected image or small monitor that is difficult to see.

If they had a classroom sized monitor, each student would be able to see every detail, and they could do it without our having to make the room dark! With more and more learning resources moving to computers having a class sized monitor would truly bring my classroom into the digital age.
