I have a highly spirited group of kiddos! They are bright, sweet, funny, and ready to learn.
It's undeniable that Houston is still dealing with the effects of Hurricane Harvey.
Many of my students have lost so much in the flood, including their already limited access to technology. It's for that reason my project is more necessary than ever. Every day my students come ready and eager to learn new things. I will continue to do whatever it takes for all of them to be successful and equipped socially and academically.
Our school is in an economically disadvantaged area. Ninety-five percent of our scholars qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. This means that they are living either on or below the poverty level, as well as having English as a second language spoken in the home.
Technology is becoming more and more prevalent in our society. From using touch screens to order food in restaurants to standardized testing to smartphones, it's nearly impossible to get through a day without it. Yet, many of my students don't have access to learn how technology works and how to safely navigate the internet.
I want to bridge the gaps.
I’m requesting two Chromebooks to allow my students to begin to build essential keyboarding skills, research, and work collaboratively. The Echo Dot will be able support literacy by having students ask her how to spell a specific word, suggest a synonym, or provide a definition.
