My Students

My students are participating in a special program within our school. Our Title I school serves about nine hundred students. We also house many special programs. One of the special programs we offer is for gifted learners. This program has around three hundred students in grades six through eight and I teach about one hundred and fifty-five of them. I have the unique opportunity to teach advanced math to sixth, seventh and eighth grade students. I strongly believe good math skills will open up doors for my students to do anything they want in the future.

My students enjoy learning and look forward to being exposed to new material.

They are inquisitive, hardworking and are always looking for new challenges. My students also love to play fun and interesting games in their free time and like to give back to the community. All of my kids have enjoyed the extras I can give them because of donors like you. They are always amazed at how lucky they are to have such wonderful items that enhance their learning. They have been excited about all of the community service projects and kindness acts we have done throughout the year.

My Project

Our classroom has an awesome newer Smartboard that is 85 inches big. We use it everyday for our lessons on Math and Financial Literacy. Since our smartboard runs as smoothly as the laptop hooked up to it, our smartboard get slowed down often. Unfortunately, I have to use my personal computer. My personal computer does the job, but it is an older and slower model. It sometimes makes our writing on the smartboard slower and keeps us from moving on. I really would like to see our lessons get faster. We have a real need for speed. I love all of my technology in my classroom and so do the kids. This piece would add to our classroom environment everyday and in every class.

Our class can't run smoothly without the use of a speedy laptop.

I would like to have this new one to rely on instead of my personal one. This would be for school use of smart notebook software, so it doesn't get bogged down with other programs and usage.
