My students need an iPad to help them engage more fully in Math, Science, and Social Studies.

My Students

I have inquisitive, eager students ready to go off on a new learning adventure. I teach students from a variety of backgrounds who range in age from 9-11. They need stimulating resources to encourage their love of learning, and that's why I'm here.

With your help, I can create lessons that help my students learn the skills they need to succeed not only in school but also in life.

Isn't that what we all really want for children? I love my students and want the best for them. They are our future.

Thank you for your help. Even if you can't donate, please share my link with others. Someone you know can help get my project funded.

My Project

I am asking for an iPad for my students to use to explore Science, Math, and Social Studies. Math and Science are subjects that are very, very important for students to be able to grasp, but they are not always the subjects that all students are interested in. Social Studies can give students information that they should know as a citizen of the United States. But it's not always interesting for them to learn this information.

With your help, I can get students really interested in science and math for reasons beyond making a good grade in the class.

They can see science come to life in a digital environment since we will not always be able to safely experience all areas of the science curriculum in the classroom. Using the iPad for Math can add support to what they are learning in the classroom. I want my students to really get involved with Science and Math this year. I am teaching the future generation of scientists who can make a difference in the world. Mathematics and Science go hand in hand. With an iPad, students will be more engaged and willing to learn both of these subject areas.

I also teach Social Studies, and that is a subject that can benefit students greatly if they can be engaged enough to learn. I already have some ideas for how I would like to use the iPad. I just need the funding to carry them out. Even a small donation helps. Even sharing this on your social media helps. Thank you.
