My Students

If I could describe my kindergarten class in 3 words it would be enthusiastic, motivated, and loving! As a first year teacher, this year I have the pleasure of teaching 20 bright kindergartners! My class is a very diverse class serving students of all different backgrounds, socioeconomic classes, and races. Although my students come from different walks of life they all have one thing in common: their love for learning and technology! My students and I thank you for any donation no matter how big or small! "Giving is not just about making a donation, it's about making a difference" -Kathy Calvin CEO & President of the United Nations.

My Project

Technology is evolving every day. It is so important for students to be able to learn how to use it at a young age. The use of tablets in my classroom will allow my students to take part in many online learning activities across the curriculum. It is a well known fact that young children learn best through hands-on and play.

With these tablets I will be able to let them learn through play and be able to differentiate instructional needs.

I believe that through the use of these tablets, my students will be pushed to new heights in the classroom. I can't wait to see them learn and grow .
