My Students

I teach at a public school in San Francisco, CA. This year I have a fantastic bunch of rambunctious 4th graders. Although the year has just started, they are already extremely empathetic and respectful towards one another. I love them.

They love science, engineering, reading, art, and especially love to share their work with others.

It is exciting to have a group that is just as excited about learning as I am. We are going to have an awesome year!

My Project

Two years ago I was generously gifted a used smart board. My students absolutely loved the hands-on features of the smart board. It made my lessons more engaging and student-centered. Being a used smart board, it ended up having a lot of issues. Through the ingenuity of my colleagues and myself it is now usable, but our projector displays only a tiny image on the screen.

Now, my students cannot read anything off the board unless they are directly in front of it.

It is my only way of displaying anything in the classroom, so it has been quite an issue. A new projector will solve our problem and bring our smart board back to its full capacity. Please help us have a functional classroom again!
