My Students

My students are amazingly curious about learning and highly motivated children. They are ready to learn and more than anything ready to take on any challenge that comes their way to grow academically no matter what the situation may face them. They have become my inspiration to challenge myself to give them the tools to be successful.

Our school is in the East End area and our students are considered low income; about 95% of students receive free lunch.

My students have suffered tremendously due to budget deficits our school has been facing for the past 2 years. Due to the tremendous budget cuts, it makes it hard for the school to provide the needed materials and most updated technology and materials to create successful investigators. I believe that my students also deserve to have the same opportunity as any other students in other schools or districts that are not going through the budget deficits we are.

My Project

My students have just received a set of 10 fantastic iPad's that will enhance their learning. The only problem know is that we do not have a safe place to keep them or charge them to maintain them charged daily. Without the tablets not being charged, students are not able to use them and take full advantage of the. By having this charging station will allow for all of them to be charged overnight and be ready for students to use without having to come back and take turns using the outlets to charge them. Tablets will always be prepared to use by students and take full advantage of their instructional time.
