My Students

I teach fifth grade in a very diverse school. In my classroom, my students speak seven different languages. Their families represent countries from all over the world. Some of my students are new to the country and have very limited English. My students are excited to learn each day!

The students have many differences but they always seem to find a way to work together.

Our entire district has faced many budget cuts over the years and we are in need of vital supplies and resources. My students deserve the very best. I know that with the help of others we can make a difference!

My Project

In my classroom of 33, students have to wait for their turn to use one of the ten computers in the classroom. More computers in the classroom could enhance their chances to work on individualized programs in both math and literacy. With more computers in the room, my students would have a better chance to use a computer for researching a science and social studies projects.

My students would use the Chromebooks to do research, work on math and reading intervention programs and create Google Docs.

Five additional computers in the classroom would make a big difference! It would allow each of my students to use technology every day. Thanks for considering my request.
