My Students

The students at the school are very diverse and unique. They love school just as much as the next child. The one thing that many of the students look forward to is coming to science class.

In our school, many of the students do not have the opportunity to use science in their life, and it has become even less with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma and Maria.

The majority of the students at the school come from low-economical households. Students and parents do not have the financial means to provide essentials. Since Hurricane Irma and Maria, things have become even tighter for parents.

My Project

After Hurricanes Irma and Maria many of our students were without power for lengthy periods of time and suffered damage to their homes. When school was back in session, for many of them, school became their safe haven. Along with this, we are starting to see an increase of students to our area that evacuated Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated their homes.

I am getting an increase of students that do not speak English.

We need an iPad to help bridge their learning gap after Irma and Maria. Having access to an iPad in the classroom will help these students stay on pace. I can have them access information on the lesson we are learning in their native language. I can also have the students practice their English with interactive games and other online resources. Please help me bring my classroom to the 21st century and help the students that need it the most.
