My Students

My students come from a background of low poverty. They are strong willed and eager to learn everyday.

My classroom is always filled with their smiling faces and students who are engaged, staying on task and ready to learn.

It is because of them that I love my job and wake up every morning excited to be with them.

Some of my students go through more then I have ever seen in my thirty years of living and I respect them for what they go through.

My Project

I would like to give my students the opportunity to use technology for learning purposes.

There are so many amazing lessons and apps that are out there that I am unable to get a hold of and I would love for my students to be able to experience.

The iPads will help focus on reading, writing, math and science. There are so many education apps out their that I would love to use with my students, but am unable to with the technology that I have.

With these iPads my students will be able to leave the classroom and use the technology to advance their minds.
