My Students

My students are the best students I could ever ask for. They come to school each day with the desire to learn and succeed. It isn't easy for them; most are learning English as a second language, eat only when they are at school, and have missed out on many of the experiences other children their age have had, but they don't let that stop them! My 19 students are determined to overcome the odds and be all they can be!

What my students lack in tangible goods, they make up for ten-fold in creativity, perseverance, and heart.

They are clever, hard-working, and considerate. They love to "get their hands dirty" and explore learning rather than listen to me talk. They learn best when they are allowed to discover, apply, and think in depth about topics.

My Project

iPads allow students an engaging, creative way to practice skills we are learning in math, guided reading, science, and social studies. We have devices available for checkout in our building, but they are often reserved weeks at a time. When we get some, it's usually not a class set. While students are experts at sharing, there are some activities that would work much better if we all had our own devices.

Having an iPad stored in our own room would allow my students to practice showing what they know in a digital format.

We are getting ready to take our state assessments, which are on the computer. Because my students don't have much technology at home, they aren't as familiar with it as some of their peers. They are confident that they know the academic material - I don't want the technology to get in the way simply because we haven't had a chance to practice!

In addition to getting ready for the state test, the iPad will allow them to experience digital tools they wouldn't otherwise encounter, such as coding, animation, and typing.
