My Students

I am privileged to teach a lovely group of students in the South Bronx, New York City. The South Bronx is a challenging area, yet my students push through and come to school on a daily basis, rain or shine. They are always so very eager to learn. They are a mix of visual, auditory, and tactile learners. They enjoy reading, especially when materials are visually and auditorily presented. They are also tactile learners who enjoy working with their hands.

My students are hard-working, determined, and enjoy activities that are NOT only engaging, but also INTERACTIVE.

My younger students (grade kindergarten-second) are working so hard to master learning their letter sounds, blending and segmenting words. My older students (grade three-five) are working primarily on reading comprehension and vocabulary. It is a joy to impart knowledge to these lovely individuals.

My Project

The tablets that I am requesting will be beneficial to my students because they are tactile learners who enjoy using materials and items that they can touch. There are many educational apps that are free downloadables that can be used in my classroom. I am the Special Education Teacher Support Service (SETTS) teacher in my school. I do either pull-outs or push-ins to classrooms to assist students with Reading, Writing, and Math needs. Most of my students in K-3rd are struggling with reading. Most are reading below grade level. I have noted that my students do better when lessons are interactive, and when they can make text to world connections.

Most of my students are well versed in using technology at home, but I would be grateful if I am awarded these materials so that we can be engaged and interactive in school while learning.

Currently, we are working on mastering the alphabet, letter sounds, blending, and decoding gade appropriate words. Upper-grade students are working on reading comprehension and vocabulary. These materials will be very instrumental in our daily sessions to help meet the goals of all of my students.
