My Students

iThink, iCan, iThink, iCan...with an iPad mini! Help us jump into learning in a 21st century classroom where students are engaged in learning through the use of amazing technology!

I co-teach an amazing group of second graders!

Our students are extremely motivated to learn and have a thirst for knowledge. We are a diverse school in an incredible town with a very supportive community. Our students come from all walks of life and come together to create a unique group of little learners. Our school is a warm, nurturing place where students love to come each day to work together and learn from each other. The goal is to make learning interactive and fun!

My Project

Our students light up every time we have the opportunity to infuse technology into our classroom. An iPad mini will help bring this excitement to our classroom EVERY day. This is not something that is possible at the moment, and we would love to give them this opportunity. An iPad mini will enable us to engage students in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies! There will no longer be boundaries to the learning that our students can do this year and in years to come! We will be able to use the iPad and case to differentiate instruction during centers and whole group learning in an exciting and meaningful way.

Help change our motto from iThink, iCan to iKnow, iCan with a new iPad mini and case!

Be a part of showing our students what learning is like in a dynamic technologically rich environment! This project will allow students to engage in learning at their individual levels in a way that meets their needs and doesn't compare their abilities to others!
