My Students

The students and families that my school serves are the sweetest! These kids come to school each day with smiles on their faces, eager and ready to learn! They face adversity everyday, but still come to school ready to learn. The homes and situations from which these students and their families come from may not be in their control, yet it is my job to provide the best learning experiences for these students, I possibly can.

Even though these children come from low socioeconomic backgrounds, you would never guess that when interacting with them.

These kids may not have the most, but they definitely deserve the most. Parent involvement is something that my school strives for on a daily basis. What better way to get parents involved then giving them the chance to see all the learning their students are gaining in school? Student-led conferences are a great way to get these parents involved in their students' learning and this is something we are working to provide for my students and parents. Your help with this project would provide these opportunities to both my students and their parents!

My Project

As my students have more access to technology within the classroom, they are in need of tools to help support this technology.

We need a class set of headphones so we can use our iPads during literacy and math centers!

Right now, we do not each have headphones, which makes learning with all the iPads a challenge. Each student uses a program called Lexia for literacy and a program called Dreambox for math, but when we are all using these during our centers, it makes it very hard to focus and hear what we are working on. We need the headphones in order to focus in on our reading and math skills so we can become better readers and mathematicians!
