My Students

I work at a Title I school in a rough neighborhood, that recently switched to a Magnet Campus. Many of my students are from the neighborhood, and will be allowed to stay on campus for 2 years with the opportunity to test into the Talented and Gifted program. My homeroom is 90% African American/10% Hispanic, and even though the community they come from is economically disadvantaged, they all have beautiful personalities despite the hardships they face. Having the tablets in my class room will allow me more time to bring kids that have fallen behind up to speed in small groups, while allowing more advanced students to explore exciting learning apps, as opposed to doing "extra work" because they finish faster. I hope to do all I can to make a difference in their lives, and open up opportunities they otherwise would not have.

My Project

I teach 2nd grade Talented and Gifted students at a Title I campus and due to their circumstances many of my students do not have access to technology.

We will use these tablets with apps such as Seesaw to create interactive school projects that can be shared with parents and peers.

Seesaw will also allow students to learn skills like video editing while simultaneously learning the curriculum.

The tablets will also be used with apps that teach coding and other computer science related skills. The skills that my students will acquire through exposure to these programs will be useful throughout their lifetime.
