My Students

I am blessed to have a great class of 21 3rd grade students. I am a self-contained 3rd grade ESL teacher. My kids range in ethnicity from Ghana, Togo, Mexico, Peru, Honduras, Somalia, Salvador, Ethiopia and good ole United States of America. But, our classroom is in dire need of technology that remains in our classroom.

My students are learning to speak, read, write, and learn English which is their second language in third grade.

In most cases, English is not spoken or taught in the home and that is where additional consistent support comes from me in the classroom from day to day.

My students embrace learning and appreciate the opportunities given to them in the classroom and the school.

My Project

My students need computers to be more resourceful and be equipped in the 21st Century. We borrow a couple of computers once a week to complete lessons but we need our own computers in our room that are accessible when the need arises which is everyday.

The majority of my students come from a low income household and most do not own computers nor have transportation to go to library to use their computers.

Having them in the classroom will help to improve in areas of weaknesses such as reading comprehension, math, phonics, and grammar. If you can help, it would be greatly appreciated.
