My Students

"We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher's hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world." - David Warlick My thoughts exactly.

I teach first grade in a dual-language program.

My students have a variety of learning styles and are highly interested in learning about the world around them. Students are engaged in the classroom and love to share what they learn about. Our school is full of staff and supporters who enjoy helping and guiding our children. We treat each other with respect and have high expectations for all.

My Project

"A research study, conducted in Auburn, Maine showed that first grade students using iPads scored much higher on literacy tests than students that didn't use the device." Source: TUAW Using an iPad in the classroom is a powerful tool that I can use in my classroom to aid in learning and comprehension. iPads allow for students to become engaged in their learning. Especially with a classroom full of English Language Learners, being engaged in activities is very important for them. iPads will allow me to use visuals to aid in the acquisition of academic language, which is something that according to studies generally takes up to 5 years. iPads will also allow for students to practice their math skills, in a fun and engaging manner.

The donations to my classroom will greatly improve the learning of my students.

iPads will allow my students to use technology to improve and grow their language and math skills. Many of my students come from another country and their English language skills are significantly behind that of their counterparts. Using vocabulary and language applications on the iPads will increase their language skills faster than using pencil and paper alone.
