My Students

Do you remember a great Social Studies teacher who inspired your curiosity to learn and critically think about the world around you and all that came before you? My students are faced daily with the challenge of finding relevance in learning about the past.

I am truly blessed to teach 120, full of life, 8th graders in Connecticut.

They come from various socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. These students come to class every day with an eagerness to learn. They come also with the need to be "hooked" onto what they are learning.

My Project

Technology will allow my students to connect to History in a way that is meaningful to them. It will give them the skills they need and allow them to critically think, create and collaborate in ways that prepares them for today's world. I am asking for your help in purchasing a Samsung tablet and keyboard docking station, for our classroom. It would be used with my 8th grade students to reinforce content presented in Social Studies class. My students would be able to research topics in more depth, create hands-on projects, play Social Studies games, and create historical timelines with videos.

Your help with this project will make such a difference in the lives of my students.

It will truly help bring the social studies alive for my students and give them the skills they need to be successful in life. I thank you in advance for your attention to this request and for all you do to support public education.
