My Students

My students are very bright and funny. Even though they are virtual, my students have very intellectual opinions on topics that might be hard for adults to grasp. Each of them have different personalities, no one student is the same.

My Project

I want to give my kids an incentive for learning! The devices they have now must be returned to the school, but with your help, we can give students that they could use when the schools ask them to bring the devices back! It can be used for reading, movies, researching, applying, and etc. It’ll help some of my students have hope and be proud of tackling virtual learning. Students are not as motivated as they should be, but hopefully, this pushes students in my class. Thank you for your time.
