My Students

SURPRISE! I have a summer secret. I'll be moving to a new grade level next year and looping back with some my Kindergarten kiddos from two years ago. I'm so excited to surprise them when they see that I'm their teacher again for a new year and a new grade level! They went from being 5-6 years old to now being 7-8 and even more active and engaged then before. Students learn in different ways and because of that, I want to make sure all of them get a chance to learn with technology.

My students are at an age where their curiosity and love of learning is being developed and exposing them to technology will help their young minds explore our ever changing world.

As I move up with them on this adventure, I want to make sure my students have all that they need to be successful in second grade and in their future simply because they are just that...the future.

My Project

With your help, I am looking for five iPads and protective cases for my sweet group of kiddos. With the world of technology continuing to play a huge role in our students learning and success, these materials will help them in subjects such as math and literacy. These materials will be used daily and help them be more independent with their learning and more technology-savy.

By donating to our project, you will help my students further their education, continue their excitement for learning and grow day by day.

You will help my students be engaged, utilize the endless applications and enable them to learning we never thought possible. I thank you for your love and support.
