My Students

I am a first-year teacher at a priority school in SW DC. Our school has been labeled as a "40-40" school meaning that we are among the lowest-performing schools in DCPS. 100% of our kiddos receive free and reduced-price lunch. Our school population also has a high number of special education students. In my room, I have a variety of learners, including students with ADHD, speech impediments, learning disorders and emotional disturbance.

We don't receive supplies from parents or the school, so we are trying to fill the gap with help from donors!

With your help, we can create a loving, warm learning environment for my 1st graders where they have access to all the materials they need to learn!

My Project

Our math curriculum (Eureka) calls for a document camera so that we can project samples of student work to discuss and to project working with math manipulatives.

We just started a unit on measurement and it has been super challenging trying to line up centimeter cubes, string, and rules on the floor at a view everyone can see.

I'm constantly hearing "I can't see!" Having a document camera would mean that we can model measurement under the camera and every student would be able to see it! This would save so much time of constantly reminding friends to sit down so other people can see work on the floor!

Please help me strengthen our math lessons by integrating this technology!
