My Students

My students are "young minds," eager to learn. Our main focus is to create a love for reading. My students have enjoyed their independent reading time. Our theme for the year is Owls.

Our nest is in need of comfort.

During independent reading and stations, my students get to find a place in the classroom to read quietly. With technology, students will be able to read their favorite book on a reading app and take a quiz. With your help, my students will be able to reach their learning potential with the most advanced technology available. My students are grateful for your generosity.

My Project

I teach First grade at a Title I school in Victoria, Texas. We were affected by Hurricane Harvey and our resources are limited for this school year. With that said, my students love school and love to work with technology. Their favorite station is computers. We use Istation, accelerated reading and online readers in order to assist in our reading and math fluency. Our classroom currently has 4 desktop computers. Use of four Amazon Fires would give more time to more students on technology.

My students are eager to engage in new technology and to be fluent in reading and math through the experience.
