My Students

My students are the motivating force of what I do every day. I get to learn from an amazing group of students from a variety of cultures, countries, backgrounds, and experiences as I help them learn as well.

These students are often significantly behind grade level, and maintaining the desire to learn is a challenge I face as the curriculum gets more and more rigorous.

These students want to learn and feel supported in their education as they deserve.

These students motivate me consistently, and I want to reciprocate that feeling by helping them feel motivated through engaging activities and materials. They need people who believe in them and know that they have the ability to succeed just as I do.

By receiving materials and projects from DonorsChoose, my students have felt like they are valued in society and that they deserve nice and new things to support their education.

My Project

Keeping students engaged in learning can be a challenge for anyone. Allowing them to practice skills and strategies through interactive games fosters the joy for learning we hope to instill in all students.

With these interactive literacy games, students will have opportunities to practice a variety of skills and learn new things while having fun.

Finding ways to motivate my students to learn can be difficult in the upper elementary grades. Game time allows my students to have fun and also provides me the opportunity to sneak in some more practice and learning. Students often forget that what they are doing is actually helping them with their literacy skills when it is formatted like a game.
