My Students

We are a fun, inspired, fifth-grade class with a diverse group of students.

My students are digital natives and embrace every technology introduced.

A current-generation TV will allow me to mold the curriculum to help my students optimize their learning experience. With more than 30 students in the classroom, it is vital to use every option available to fully engage each student.

My Project

With technology changing at the speed of light, the options available for enhancing our children's education are growing exponentially. To harness these tools, we need to upgrade our cathode-ray tube TV to a current-generation TV that we will integrate with our iPads and computers.

This TV will enhance the learning experience of my students in many ways.

As we continue to integrate more technology into the classroom, we will build strong foundations for learning and development. We would like to thank our wonderful donors like Chevron for their never-ending support!
