My Students

I feel so fortunate to have the privilege of being a 2nd grade Dual Language Immersion teacher at an incredible elementary school in California. Our school offers a unique Dual Language Immersion program whose goals include helping to foster children’s development of fluency in communication and literacy in two languages, English and Spanish, acquisition of knowledge in all academic subjects, and understanding and appreciation of other cultures, while at the same time inspiring self-esteem and critical thinking. I am thrilled to be part of the Dual Language Immersion program and believe strongly in its goals. My students are amazing! They are learning to read, write, speak and listen in both Spanish and English, as well as reaching for mastery of all academic content standards.

Our school is in Program Improvement for the seventh year in a row, we are a Title I school, and we have many socioeconomically disadvantaged students as well as a high percentage of second language learners.

My 2nd-grade students are at the critical age. They are learning strong fundamental academic skills. What they learn this year will affect the rest of their educational experience, and so failure is not an option.

My Project

These iPad mini tablets will be used in my classroom daily! They will provide my students with the opportunity to research topics being taught in class. Students will be able to prepare and videotape their oral language speeches, as well as their collaborative projects. Students will also be able to work on video creations across the content areas by using various apps, such as Educreations and Story Wheel. There are a plethora of reading/literary, math, and science apps available for the iPad mini that enhance my students academic skills. There are also many coding/programming and creativity apps that help children develop creative and critical thinking skills. The possibilities are simply endless!! For today's student, technology is not a luxury, but rather, technology is a necessity! Please help my students and me feel technologically empowered by gifting these iPad mini tablets to our classroom!

In order for my students to soar into a successful future, they must have technological skills.

This project will give my students the chance to work collaboratively to expand their learning in all subject areas, through current technology tools. Donations for this classroom project will immediately benefit all of my students. Would you please donate two iPad minis to my current and future students? Thank you for your generous support of today's children and the future leaders of our country!
