My Students

Do you remember your first experience with computers? My students come from different parts of the world. Some of them have never seen a computer. In my classroom, they learn not only English, but how to be successful in a technology based economy. Flash drives will help to save their projects.

I teach at The N.

Center, an English language learning, sheltered classroom in North Carolina for new English language learners from 6th to 12th grade. There are up to 30 students in the program. My students come from a variety of countries that include Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Thailand, Brazil, Mexico, Honduras, and El Salvador, to name a few. They bring with them a diversity of cultures, languages and literacy levels. Our common goals are: to increase English language proficiency level, to adapt to the United States culture, and to be up to date with technology so they can be successful in their home schools. They are committed to learning and passionate about adapting to their new home. They work hard as they learn English as well as all other 21st Century skill skills.

My Project

My classroom includes a computer lab where students are introduced to technology (many for the first time in their lives.) They will learn how to create Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and conduct research. A flash drive for each student would give students the ability to save and/or share their work. As they acquire computers of their own, they will be able to work on their assignments at home and practice their, reading, writing, speaking and listening skills as well as the use of technology.

Your support to this project will increase the chance for new English language learners to be prepared to meet the standards required to complete high school and go on to college or the workforce as a contributing part of our society.
