My Students

Today's kids are growing up in a world full of technology; with information literally at their fingertips.

I teach English Language-Arts and Reading in a Title 1 school.

My students come to me with many different backgrounds and experiences. I teach students with a wide range of educational needs: from gifted students to dyslexic and special education students. Many of my students do not have access to technology at home.

My Project

I am requesting an iPad Mini to use in Literacy Stations and classroom centers. Students will have access to educational apps, books, and websites, and be able to work independently and in small groups. Students will be able to work at their level, and experience learning on a new level.

With an iPad Mini, the educational possibilities are unlimited.

Students will have access to technology that they might otherwise never experience. Students will be engaged and excited to learn!
