My Students

My students have a variety of different learning abilities, as well as diverse backgrounds. Many of my students come from countries around the world which makes it difficult to learn when they are immersed in primarily English speaking schools. However, I'm fortunate enough to teach a subject that is has its own universal language, math.

Over 75% of the students in my school are on free or reduced-price lunch, and about one in four students receive English Language Learning services.

These students come from low socio-economic areas with many language barriers that make it frustrating for students to work hard and may not be successful due to the lack of resources. As a result, the ESL population becomes discouraged, disengaged, may refuse opportunities, and attendance is decreased.

In order to change these typical norms that students are unfortunately provided with, change needs to happen in the classroom, not only by building relationships with the students, but by providing them with opportunities to grow through technology for individualized learning to target and meet each need.

My Project

The requested charging station will be used to charge our new class set of Chromebooks. Recently my class received donated Chromebooks in order to engage students who are not as fortunate to receive resources. Since the majority of the students in my classroom miss multiple school days due to several reasons such as disengagement, language barriers, etc., students’ grades are decreasing and resulting in suspensions due to behavioral issues.

With Chromebooks that are properly organized and secure, students become more engaged through personalized learning.

In order to obtain and sustain engagement, these Chromebooks need to be properly charged and ready to use for various classroom activities. Because our school has such a diverse population, many of our students face various challenges that prevent them from learning. With properly charged Chromebooks, we are able to personalize their learning through a variety of programs. This Chromebook charging cart will also ensure the safety and organization of our new computers for our at-risk-students.
