My Students

The students in my class face several challenges both in an out of the classroom as our school is located in a high poverty neighborhood. Despite any challenges they may face, my hope is that in our school, we provide high quality and meaningful learning experiences.

The goal is for students to be excited to come to school every day and to be consistently and actively engaged.

Creating a classroom that is welcoming and comfortable for students is a major priority.

My Project

These laptops will help students on a daily basis. They will be able to work on skills on various websites that are available through our school. They can also complete projects.

Laptops are a valuable tool that can enhance student learning.

They can be used to prepare students for working in the real world. We create many slide shows and other documents that require a laptop. Students are also able to use the laptops for research projects by using the internet. My students will be better prepared for high school and college if they master laptop skills early in their educational path.
