My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, I serve students who are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.

They love to learn in a hands-on style. I love seeing the determination on their faces when they take on new challenges and persevere through them. With access to these materials, students will have a chance to be innovative and practice real-world skills that will help them become college and career ready.

They love to use technology and catch onto the abundant number of games and programs designed to make learning fun. Presently, my students share 7 Amazon Fire Tablets. Unfortunately, those tablets are not compatible with our i-Ready technology component.

My Project

We have already been blessed to have on iPad donated to our classroom. By adding another one to our classroom collection of technology tools, I hope to slowly grow our access to learning like 21st century learners who have ready, equal access to technology.

My end goal is to eventually add enough iPads so that each and every one of my students can use a tablet or computer on a one to one basis whenever they choose.

There are so many educational apps that really make the learning come to life for my students. As our state gets ready for state testing, these iPads will be a new and exciting way to review the material that will be presented throughout the year. They will also provide extra practice through our online curriculum and other such things.
