My Students

My students are simply amazing! They are the sweetest 5 and 6 year olds you will ever meet. We are a small, rural town, in the East Texas area. The school I teach at is a Title I school, where 76% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. The majority of my students do not have access to technology at home, so to bridge the gap, my goal is to provide a technology-rich environment for our students to learn in. Through the use of technology, I am able to make learning more fun and exciting, which keeps them motivated and engaged. These iPads would be an amazing gift to our classroom, because they could be used in many ways, including reading, sight words, math and research for science. These iPads would also afford me the opportunity to be able to reach all of my kiddos, no matter their background or abilities. They would also be a great tool that I could use to reach and teach my non-English speaking students.

My Project

The 21 students that make up my classroom are smart, loving, and caring. They love to learn, and I love to teach them! When teaching a new topic or subject, we are currently limited to the resources the school has to offer. While they are helpful, nothing compares to being able to hop online and pull up a picture of a real-life thornbug or see a time lapse video of the life cycle of a butterfly. I am constantly seeking new ways to expand their learning opportunities and to include technology is one way. Many of my students lack access to technology in their homes. Their inquisitive minds need stimulating and enthralling academic exposures in order to help solidify the content they are learning. With these iPads, my students could read, practice math skills, or research the latest insect we are studying. The possibilities are endless!
