My Students

This is my sixth year teaching and each year brings a new set of students with gifts and challenges. I teach at a Title I school and I wouldn't have it any other way. Teaching kids who need love and a place to feel safe is my calling.

I have the most amazing bunch of 1st graders who just love to read, they would read all day if I would let them.

They especially love reading through the program Raz Kids. I have seen them make amazing progress in their reading skills through the use of this program.

My classroom is only equipped with 4 desktop computers and I would love to provide my students with more opportunities to read by having 6 extra tablets in my classroom. The tablets also would give them the flexibility to sit in the special saucer chairs in my reading nook.

My Project

These tablets and protection cases would be used specifically for reading programs such as Raz Kids and istation. The tablets/Kindles will help my students become engaged in different genres of literacy. They will be able to use these tablets to sit in the special reading nook or in other special areas of the classroom.

Developing a love for reading is crucial to my student's academic success.

The love of reading they will develop with these tablets will continue throughout their life and allow them to use their imagination to travel around the world. When students love reading, all the other subjects become easier to be successful in.
