My Students

I teach at a Title I school in the Bay Area where eighty percent of the students receive free or reduced lunch. Many of our students are second language learners. They come to school every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day.

We are a STEM school, where we teach students to be global innovators and apply their knowledge to real-life situations.

The students are excited to explore, collaborate, and act as problem-solvers. They take pride in their efforts and deserve every tool and supply to help them along the way.

My Project

Our class is working on building our 21st Century Skills through technology.

We often use our iPads for projects that include critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.

While iPads have keyboards, they are too small and awkward. This makes it difficult for students to learn to type correctly.

My students would benefit from having an external keyboard. These keyboards connect directly to the iPads and do not require charging. It also has a stand which holds the iPad securely in place. These keyboards have full size keys which will help students learn to type correctly and efficiently. Having access to keyboards will make typing their projects easier and faster.
