My Students

The students that I am so fortunate to work with are amazing third graders who all come from our poverty-stricken community. They need as much motivation as they can get.

Many of my students experience so much trauma that they do not like coming to school.

They come from families that do not have the resources or the ability to help them academically or financially. We want to create a positive atmosphere for them where we can celebrate their successes.

Many of them​ have learning disabilities and struggle with language acquisition, speech impairments and/or emotional disabilities. Their life experiences have left them reading way below grade level, struggling to express themselves, often resorting to violent outbursts and lacking the basics that many take for granted.

My Project

Having Kindles in my classroom will allow me to utilize technology more often in my classroom. I will be able to use them to allow my lowest students to access apps such for math, reading phonics and comprehension. Students will also be able to access their library accounts on the devices to read their books.

Kindles that are provided by this project will allow more students to use technology in my classroom.

My students will be able to play more educational games, to engage more in guided reading, and to let them use during independent reading time.

Adding these Kindles to our classroom will enhance learning for all of the students.
