My Students

My students make me want to teach for a lifetime in this urban environment. They are part of one of the largest urban school districts in MA. There are 52 languages spoken in our school community. We struggle with many of the same issues all urban schools struggle with: full classrooms, not enough supplies, the many faces of poverty, but that is not what defines my students! My students are bright young individuals who deserve access to a thriving educational environment which moves them beyond the traditional classroom walls.

My Project

I am continually working towards building technology in my classroom in a productive and positive way. I am requesting two new laptops which will be added to our classroom cart. Technology, in the right format, enhances our classroom and the work we can do together.

I need our students to have access to the web and a space to collaboratively work on their writing.

We use computers in the classroom to complete group projects with the use of Google Classroom and Google Slides. Computers are used to complete research and type papers. Students currently are working in our Race and Ethnicity class to write their own children's books on topics of tolerance, diversity, and acceptance. Please help add to our classroom culture of community with the addition of two new laptops!
