My Students

My students come from very low-income areas with very diverse backgrounds. Due to different circumstances, their families are unable to provide manipulatives, literature, or other materials needed to make adequate growth. So, as their teacher, it is my mission to help supply them with what they need to leave my class at grade level or above. The path to college starts in Kindergarten, and my students deserve the very best!

Due to circumstances they cannot control, my students come in far below their grade level peers.

My Project

Fire tablets allow personalization of student work. Every day in my class we participate in math and English language arts centers; I have one group of scholars at my teacher table and the rest of the class are completing independent centers. Independent centers are great, except every scholar is different and every scholar needs something different in order to succeed.

Kindle Fire tablets will allow me to personalize  the student work and give every scholar what they need to succeed.

If this project is funded it will not only allow me to personalize scholars' independent centers, but it will also give technology access to scholars who do not get this opportunity at home.
