My Students

My students are an incredible group of first graders who come from a diverse community in an area with high poverty. Some of my students do not have resources or support from home to enhance their learning. As their teacher, I do my best to provide my students with the best learning environment. My students' ability levels range from one year below grade level to two years above grade level.

With such a wide range of ability levels, I must work extra hard to meet the needs of all of my students.

With your help, I'm confident that I can enrich the lives of all of my first graders and encourage my students to become lifelong learners!

My Project

A new iPad will provide my students with more opportunities to use the hands-on technology we already have in our classroom. My students have been busy coding our Dash and Dot robots and using Osmos on a daily basis. There's only one problem- we can only program and code these robots through an iPad. Every child wants a turn, but with a limited amount of iPads available in our school, time to program and code is limited, too. Adding another iPad to our classroom will increase the number of children who can participate in these STEM activities, as well as use educational apps that reinforce reading and math skills. I hope to continue to provide my students with hands-on experiences that inspire them to think creatively and problem solve.
