My Students

My students need a Mac Book Pro to explore the world beyond the classroom walls. Technology provides opportunity to impact learning in new and exciting ways.

Today's students are more engaged through the use of visual and interactive lessons.

Our classrooms are magical places where lessons become understandable and information becomes useful. However, with the use of technology our students will have immediate access to explore the moons of Jupiter, the human digestive system, and global friendships. Having a Mac Book pro will allow us to explore the newest educational websites to enhance our lessons in literacy, math, art, and science.

My Project

Our school does not provide computers for each student. Therefore, I asking for help to purchase a Mac Book Pro so the students can experience technology within the classroom. Having a Mac Book Pro in the classroom with allow students to engage with the latest educational sites and activities. Our students learn by watching, listening, and participating with interactive activities. All of which, one MacBook Pro can provide. This Mac Book Pro would be used for daily instruction with software programs that are currently provided by district purchased curriculum. In addition, a Mac Book Pro will help me design the best lessons to reach all my students.

"Anyone who does anything to help a child is a hero to me."
