My Students

I teach at a Title I school in Northern California. A majority of our students receive free or reduced price lunch, and nearly half of my students are second language learners. My students come from hardworking families trying to make ends meet doing all that they can to support their families. Although, our students and families face many challenges, we created a learning environment where all students can thrive, with the use of technology and the support of passionate teachers. Our students are very lucky to have a one-to-one ratio of students-to-devices which allows them to explore the world around them and prepares them for the high tech world they will be entering as adults.

I am passionate about developing meaningful relationships with my students and creating engaging learning experience that will keep them lifelong learners.

My Project

My students need games for learning responsibility about finance and money. Learning about money is essential for today's world. I want my students to have a very good understanding of how money can be spent and orgainzed in their future. Having games like Monopoly and PayDay are a great way for my students to learn about money and how it can be spent.

Having responsible money sense, will help with the succession of the next generation in terms of financial solvency.

All the games I am requesting will teach them responsibility. OSMO Pizza is a fun game that teaches about customer service, paying and giving change. ATM Action will teach them how to balance a bank account in a fun way. These games will truly make a difference in their lives as I plan to let my students take these home and play with family members too.
