My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

They are hard workers, they are good friends, and they love to move!

Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive free breakfast and lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

My students would love to use the latest technology in our classroom. An iPad would enhance their learning and prepare them for the future. There are many apps for the iPad that will give my students independent practice in reading, writing, and math. I can also use the iPad to monitor student learning and keep track of what each individual student is working on.

This iPad will keep my students excited and engaged in their learning.

It will prepare them for a future of using technology. I will be able to use this iPad each year with my students to enhance their learning.
