My Students

My day begins every day with smiling faces. My students are absolutely amazing. Their excitement for learning, their curiosity, and their kindness inspire me everyday. I teach in a Title 1 school district with many of my students speaking a multitude of languages such as Polish, Spanish, Bulgarian, and Japanese. Despite all challenges my students may experience they are eager to be successful. I am fully committed to making sure my students have the best educational experiences at a young age to motivate them in becoming life long learners.

My Project

Your generous donation will support my curious students during math, reading, and writing. The Alexa app connected to the Echo Dot has many amazing educational resources that will be a great asset to my classroom. I will use the Echo Dot to help my students with math fact fluency, vocabulary knowledge, phonemic awareness, spelling, and guide them to truly be able to go above and behind when it comes to questioning.

It is important to me that I find resources that will continue to engage my 21st century learners.

The Echo Dot will change learning in my classroom and allow me to give my students insight to all of the amazing questions they have. I have high hopes in being able to fully support my students in their journey towards becoming a life long learner and I believe this resource will help me do so.
