My Students

I teach elementary students (English Language Learners) in a low-income/high poverty school district. My students are faced with many challenges such as limited school supplies, trauma, and hardship. Even with the challenges they face both in and out of school, my students walk into our classroom happy and eager to learn each day. My students are creative and clever. I want my students to enjoy learning English through interactive technology. Interactive technology increases engagement with students and helps create a dynamic learning environment.

My Project

The Kindle Fire provides many educational apps and games that will ignite an authentic enthusiasm for learning through technology. Using the Kindle Fire tablet during centers, my students will have differentiated access to materials that cover all curriculum areas: Reading, Math, Social Studies, Science, and Writing.

School may be the only place some of my students have the opportunity to engage in activities that involve the most up-to-date technology.

Receiving a Kindle Fire tablet will allow my students to access the world around while playing educational games and activities, reading books, and researching areas that interest them. Please help my students get the technology they need to succeed!
