My Students

This year is my 5th year teaching. Every year I strive to create a comfortable, engaging and safe environment for my students. We are part of a Title I school with very limited supplies but we are eager to learn!

I am teaching a group of third graders that love to read, write and explore!

Unfortunately my students have very limited access to technology and are lacking skills needed to succeed in today’s world. In order to immerse my students in tech activities and give them a fighting chance, I need a laptop! We’ll use it to supplement writing lessons through online publishing, read books, etc. Please help us!

My Project

My students are growing up with less opportunities than I had. In today’s world, technology is not a luxury but a necessity. Unfortunately, my 23 third graders have had to share the 2 classroom desktops for months. It’s diffucult to schedule time for them to build computer literacy without interfering with other subjects. Therefore, I’m requesting a laptop to go with a beautiful Chromebook that was recently donated, to allow more computer time in the classroom. It’s so important for my students to learn how to navigate websites, use word processors, spreadsheets, complete online research and build tech savviness overall. Please help us become better equipped to take on the world!
