My Students

"Every child deserves a champion- an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be."

- Rita Pierson

I am a first-grade dual language immersion Spanish teacher to fifty respectful, responsible and safe student leaders who display school expectations throughout the school campus daily. My students work hard each and every day to achieve the educational concepts they need to learn to become successful student learners.

Our school is one out of two dual language immersion programs offered within our school district. My students are in a 50/50 model dual language immersion program that is currently developing. My students are exposed to the Spanish language 50% of the school day. Ninety-five percent of my students are Spanish language learners who are generally not exposed to the Spanish language outside of school. My students desire Spanish language proficiency although Spanish can be very challenging at times for them. Therefore, my students need a variety of Spanish material to help expose them to content that will help support and engage them in their way to becoming bilingual scholars.

My Project

Every child that enters my classroom is unique in so many ways. As their teacher it is my duty to provide them with the tools they need to be successful.

My classroom wish is to provide my students with high quality dual language Spanish immersion STEAM projects through 21st century technology.

Since our school and district does not have computer funding for 1:1 technology the implementation of iPads would provide students with a abundance of resources for STEAM projects beneath their fingertips.Through the iPads, I would be able to provide students resources through google classroom that would assist them in learning more about STEAM. Students would be able to have access to science apps, mathematics apps, coding apps and art apps. As the teacher I would be able to provide assignments and resources like weblinks and videos through google classroom to help students explore the world around them. This classroom wish would have an effect on fifty plus students that walk through my door everyday and for years to come which would help bring more students into STEAM careers in the future.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help increase appropriate interaction with 21st century technology within the classroom!
