My Students

Our school is a Title 1 school where many of the students are living below the poverty line, are English Language Learners, and are FARM (free or reduced price meal) students. In my classroom, I have the most amazing students. I love seeing how excited they are to come to school and learn. My students learn through exploration and play. I need more classroom resources to make sure my students are getting the best experience. Pre-K is the first school experience for my kids so we work hard to create a warm, welcoming environment where students feel comfortable to learn. I strive to give my students the best learning environment possible and work to make this feel safe and loved. Thank you for visiting my donors choose page.

My Project

Our world is full of technology. I want to provide the opportunity for my students to begin learning and exploring technology at a young age. The majority of my kids do not have access to much technology outside of school. There are so many amazing apps for children to help enhance their learning and spark an interest. I envision my students using their classroom iPads to practice the skills they are developing in Pre-K in math and language arts. They will be able to play games to increase their knowledge of letter sound connections or work on a math app where they are matching amounts to numbers. Putting an iPad at my students' fingertips is just another way to help my students learn through play and exploration. The iPads will also allow my students to experience technology they may otherwise never use. My goal is to eventually have 5 iPads for the classroom. This will allow students to work in an independent work station during our small group time.
