My Students

"Teaching in the Internet age means we must teach tomorrow's skills today." - Jennifer Fleming Technology in education is vital for today's children. Let's show them that technology is more than games, it can be educational too.

My school serves military families.

98% of our families have one if not both parents serving in the military. Serving for a military community my students come from many different backgrounds. As any school that serves military students, school quickly becomes a very important constant in each student's life. It is very important to the parents that their child is getting a great education no matter where they are living. Part of having a great education is being able to have a positive hands on experience while at school.

My Project

Technology is so prevalent in today's society. Almost every child knows how to work their parent's smart phone by the time they are two. I want to show my students that there is more to technology than games. Technology puts a different aspect on learning and makes it fun too. There are countless educational applications that help students with counting, letter formation, reading, writing, alphabet knowledge and more. I am requesting the donation of two mini ipads to my classroom. My students will use these during center time to help them get a better grasp of alphabet knowledge, counting, letter formation and more. All while helping my students with their fine motor skills. I have also requested screen covers and protective cases to ensure that these valuable pieces of technology last as long as possible to help as many students as they can.

Education is about changing tomorrow's world today.

Let's help our future become more technology savvy while bettering their education, by showing students that technology is so much more than games, it is educational too!
