My Students

Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time. -Chinese Proverb My students need an iPad to influence and motivate learning while keeping up with current technology.

My students are exceptional and bright.

They are hard workers and inquisitive. The children love the ability to use the computer and experience technology first hand. They enjoy the Promethean board and ELMO. I know the addition of a iPad will engage them to the fullest.

My Project

The iPad will allow my children to experience first class technology. They will be able to read, practice their math facts, work on phonics skills and be inspired to learn. This piece of technology will motivate them and allow them to move into their future better.

There can be infinite uses of the computer and of new age technology but if the teachers themselves are not able to bring it into the classroom and make it work, then it fails.

-Nancy Kassebaum, U.S. Senator Your donation will help me bring it into the classroom. The iPad will light a fire of learning within my students. Please help us succeed!
