My Students

My third-grade students love learning and new challenges. I teach at an urban elementary school in a socioeconomic disadvantaged area. About 90% of my students receive a free breakfast and lunch. Many are dropped off at 7 a.m. when the school opens and several are picked up when it closes at 6 p.m.

My students love "playing" math games, learning basic keyboarding skills, and coding.

We have two desktops in the classroom from 1996 and three laptops previously obtained through Donor's Choose. They really look forward to our daily 30 minutes in the computer lab, however, it is never long enough.

My Project

Since we only have limited access to the computer lab, this Samsung Chromebook 3 laptop will provide my students the opportunity to conduct research projects in the classroom. Based on new Common Core standards, it is imperative for my students to conduct research projects to be ready for the 21st century.

Empowering my students through technology is a must!

The Samsung Chromebook 3 laptop will also allow my students to utilize learning apps based on each student's reading and math levels. Students who have mastered a skill can move on while struggling students receive extra practice. My students would be thrilled to have a new laptop in the classroom!
