My Students

As a first year teacher, I have not had the chance to meet my students for the 2018-2019 school year yet. I do know that my students will come from a low-income, high EL, high poverty district, and are faced with challenges every day. When they come to my classroom I want the chance to help them develop a community of learners who are academically proficient, demonstrate strong character, and exhibit self-confidence. I can’t wait to meet them come August!

My Project

My second graders are growing up in a world that revolves around technology. With this iPad, my students will gain the skills that will allow them to become digitally literate. My students will have the opportunity to learn how to type on the iPad keyboard and become familiar with different programs that will allow to become competent within the digital 21st Century. This is so important to my students because most of them do not even have access to the internet at home. In the past, technology at school consisted of going to the computer lab once a week. However, as technology advances, so too does our children's need for familiarity with it in order to thrive in the work place.

iPads might seem like a trivial thing in a classroom, but they are an educational tool that also gives them access to using technology that they otherwise wouldn't have access to.

Apple has refreshed its lowest cost iPad, adding Pencil support and other software features designed especially for use in schools. The case also will ensure the iPad works for years to come to serve many more students. Thank you for your consideration in providing technology tools for my students.
