My Students

As a teacher in a low-income area, my students face many challenges both at home and at school. Based on the socioeconomic status in our district, my students receive free breakfast and lunch every day. With nearly 50 students in my classroom I serve a very wide range of academic levels and learning abilities. They are creative, silly, and so very fun! They strive for positive feedback and are always on the lookout for ways to receive positive office referrals.

Every child that walks through my door is depending on me to help them succeed.

Is eager to be respected. Wants to feel valued. Needs to be loved. And deserves to be given all of these things. Our classroom mission is based on kindness; we are a team, a family.

My Project

Your donation will not only help my students learn in an engaging and cutting-edge classroom but will also provide many needed modifications and accommodations for my students. Our classroom currently has a handful of Chromebooks and these have already been a phenomenal step towards meeting my students' needs.

With the increased opportunities for technology, this will give all of my students the chance to learn in comfort and in the most effective and efficient way possible.

This will in turn provide them with better learning prospects.

The item chosen will pave the way for a wide variety of instruction and education enhancements. The screen itself is almost 1.5x the size of our Chromebooks, this will make the use of it much easier for eyes of all ages. The main highlighted features of this laptop are the electronic or digital pen and touchscreen. I have a handful of students that require readers and scribes on a daily basis. Through the use of various programs, students can highlight text with the pen and have it read to them (either aloud or through headphones) and also turn their handwriting into more legible text. This feature will give them an avenue of learning that will allow them to reach their highest potential while also feeling that independent success that comes from getting there on their own! With the use of technology on an ever-steady rise, my entire classroom will benefit from daily practice with this through note taking, independent work, and whole class discussions.

Each student in my class can be successful.

And with these tools, they can take responsibility for their own success! Thank you for taking the time to read more about my project.
