My Students

My students are inquisitive, creative, and enjoy being challenged. They love collaboratively working on projects and tasks, but especially love using technology! Using the appropriate tools in order to meet their academic needs motivates them to learn more and allows them to become who they want to be, which is paramount to all of our success.

"In education, technology can be a life changer, a game changer, for kids who are both in school and out of school.

Technology can bring textbooks to life. The Internet can connect students to their peers in other parts of the world. It can bridge the quality gaps." (Queen Raina of Jordan)

My students live in a low-income area, within a city district that is in transition. With that being said, funding is limited and used towards human capital and basic supplies. While these items are extremely important, my students are in need of additional, technology-based supplies that are not readily available.

My Project

With the pandemic we are currently experiencing, it has become evident that our students are in need of additional technology, practice in its use, and accessibility when not at school. With this in mind, being able to provide my students with an additional iPad will afford them the opportunity to improve their math, vocabulary, and language skills, and even increase and improve their social interactions. This iPad would be able to travel with them back and forth from home to school when they need to complete research, online projects, writing tasks and general technology savviness.

"I don't use technology in my classroom because it's a buzzword or trend.

I use it because connecting my kids with the world will prepare them for the future." (Anonymous)
