My Students

As a teacher of English Language Learners (ELL) I always want to find ways to close their achievement gaps. The majority of my students are considered low income at our Title I school. Even though they come from tough backgrounds they always work hard. My students are eager to learn and be lifelong learners.

They enjoy working in groups where they get to turn and talk with their peers.

They enjoy discovering new vocabulary or strategies they didn't know. They also enjoy working with technology.

My Project

The Dell - 11.6'Chromebook - Intel Celeron - 4GB Memory - 16GB eMMC Flash Memory - Black will help add another classroom computer.

This Dell laptop will be used during rotations where students will independently work on assignments on I-station.

This laptop will help the meet the needs of many of my students. I have noticed that students really enjoy using devices to help them close gaps.

This laptop will also be used for research and when we play games on Kahoot to review . The students needs will be met in all areas because of this laptop that will be part of our classroom.
