My Students

My musical tigers are students in our Title I school. They are very eager to learn and love to move with, experience, and create music! Children on my campus are willing to take an ownership of their learning process. Our tigers deserve to feel a sense of ownership and leadership. Many do not have much at home to which they feel this sense of ownership. My children learn best when they are able to use hands on manipulative tools and when they are able collaborate with peers and be creative. This open creativity allows my students to make their learning more concrete. Due to high numbers in our music classroom (around 45 students) we are required to be very creative with our extremely limited resources.

My Project

The donation of four iPad cases will be used to ensure the life expectancy of our precious new iPads! The glass screen protectors will also help keep our screens fresh from damage and will increase the longevity of the iPad. While teaching several children with Autism, these easy to hold, stand-alone cases, will also be helpful for their developmental skills.

Our students have been through a lot after much loss due to Harvey and have never been so excited to use a resource but we need to ensure the safety for our beloved iPads!

Many of our children here in Harris county have been struggling to find motivation after experiencing such loss. They would love to ensure the safety of this inspirational tool!

In addition to the protective services we need a device to help show off our work and finished projects. We are also requesting Apple TV to help to mirror the iPads so they can become a more interactive tool. I will be able to give examples of outstanding work as well as use interactive seating charts, lesson plans, assessments, and music creatives to increase participation!
