My students are unique, inquisitive and loving! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging activities that challenge them. They come to school each day facing many different challenges.
Most of my students come from low income, single parent homes.
Every day they come to school putting their best foot forward in order to grow emotionally, personally and academically. Though my students have a lot against them, they can still achieve great things when someone advocates for them and believes in them. Honestly, these kids are why I keep doing what I do each and every day!
My students come from low income families, and they have high emotional needs.

I share this excerpt from a NAEYC article I came across because it shows how much reading is needed especially for my students in particular. My students would ABSOLUTELY benefit from having Kindles in the classroom.
These tablets would help foster a love of learning leading to more reading inside and outside of the classroom. The Kindles will help supplement students skills in ELA using technology in the classroom. Donations to this project will help to improve my students' understanding ELA and Math.
By implementing the Kindle Fires in my classroom, my students will begin to see reading as fun and enriching. We will use the Kindles to aid us in the process of becoming lifelong readers. I truly need your support to make this a reality. Thanks!
