My Students

Our population is very diverse. We have many nationalities, cultures, and abilities. Our children come to school eager to learn and with a thirst for knowledge in spite of their socioeconomic hardships. Our parents do all they can to provide our children with the supplies necessary to succeed. We have an in-depth special education program, a gifted and talented program, and a dual-language program. My computer lab is used by students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade.

An elementary school classroom is like no other place in the world.

It is a home for little ones for six hours a day. Teachers not only provide education in math, reading, and other school subjects, they provide stability, love, acceptance, and support for amazing little people. Teachers educate the whole child. Personally, I strive to teach values, love, and acceptance in my room as well.

My Project

In a million years I never would have imaged that my kitchen table would turn into my classroom for months on end. Remote learning has become a common phrase and many teachers are setting up classrooms at the kitchen table. With my own kids in a blended model, our home is a hub of learning and instruction. But, my trusty laptop has had a workout! It has worked hard since March when the world shut down, and teachers did not. Countless hours of Google Meets, remote teaching, and tech support to students and teachers has taken a toll on my computer. At the moment, we are remote again, and we just don't know for how long. An iMac desktop would allow me to better teach my students, present via Google Meet and offer tech support to my students and fellow teachers. I am one of the tech teachers!

My students and I use technology to learn, play, and have fun.

A new iMac would allow me to present more clearly and consistently and utilize many great Mac programs!
