My Students

My students are hard workers, involved learners, leaders, motivated and problem solvers. They are curious learners who ask questions and know how to seize opportunities. My school has been recognized as a National Title I Distinguished School, an award that honors schools for their positive educational advances. We were also recognized as the first in Houston ISD to have the most online entries since online schooling has been launched!

My students and I have embarked on the distance learning journey!

We are actively engaging in all sorts of different online platforms and learning new things. My students and I participate twice a week in Microsoft Teams meetings to go over new material, and to check in with each other. In addition, I am recording lessons at home for them to view and continue to learn new material.

However, I have been having difficulties recording high-quality instructional videos due to my lack of tools! I believe With DonorsChoose, the quality of educational materials will highly improve.

My Project

My wonderful students have been working amazingly hard using the assignments that I have given them with Google Classroom, YouTube, and Microsoft Teams. However, my learners would benefit greatly from me having an iPad with sound and touchscreen and a writing pen to record videos of lessons where I can write, comment, and explore any math problems.

This project will provide an iPad and microphone and a stick holder to my cell phone so that I can use these amazing tools to assist my students with their remote learning experiences.
