My Students

We are a public, inner-city, arts alternative, elementary school that receives Title I funds and 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Despite the many hardships my students face, my students come in the classroom with smiles every day eager and wanting to learn. I have fun, loving, and very caring students whose thirst for knowledge should not be overlooked due to lack of technology.

Our school uses a teaching- learning approach in which the arts are infused deeply into the academic curriculum to enhance student success and we want to be “On the Go” with technology as well.

My students deserve an excellent education—with resources to help encourage lifelong learning—so that they can actively work towards their goals of making a difference.

Many of our students are being raised by family members other than their parents, because their parents work long hours or their parents are absent in their lives. More than 80% of the school population are students that come from homes that fall below the poverty line and unfortunately they don't have access to technology outside of school.

My Project

"Help me to help my students” we need new technology. My current computer is large and affixed to my desk limiting my ability to be able to get up and be able to move around. The Surface Pro will give me the ability to make learning "On the Go". Due to school-wide budget cuts, the school will not be able to provide me with a laptop or any other similar device.

This will allow me to move around to different classrooms to work with students in small groups.

I want to provide a Positive & Productive atmosphere for my students during the school day and make sure they are not left behind in technology and through the use of a Surface Pro that will definitely make learning more manageable in the classroom.

Technology has a huge impact on learning in the 21st century. Our goal is to implement and expose our students to as much educational technology as possible! Unfortunately, many of my students only have the opportunity to learn using technology while at school.
