My Students

My students are adorable, sweet, and kind little people. They face great challenges outside of the classroom. We create a safe, fun, and empowering classroom for our students to thrive in all areas of their life. Our school is located in the inner city with underprivileged families striving for a better life. Single parents, grandparents, and older siblings continue to do their very best to instill a better way of living for their families. Having a strong background in technology would be beneficial to them.

We are 95% African-American, 2% Haitian-American, 2% Hispanic and 1% Caucasian with 97% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

My Project

My young learners are growing up in a world filled with technology and I want to make sure that they are ready for it. The ISTE Conference is a place where I can get information about new ways to bring technology to my students. Thanks to Donor's Choose, the registration to the conference has been paid. Now I am asking for food and transportation costs. I plan to drive to the conference and eat at local restaurants.

At ISTE I will learn about how to work together with parents to promote our students' safe, healthy, and productive uses of technology.

The Early Learning Network award will be given to an individual supporting the effective use of digital technology to support teaching and learning in early childhood. I can't wait to attend that session to hear about who won this award and what they do to be so successful.

Another session that interests me is one where I can learn how to design and launch a makerspace for early learners. I will be given ideas about space, design, materials and safety precautions. I will be given ideas to implement immediately along with free online resources.

There is a kindergarten app on natural resources and sustainability/stewardship as a replacement for Earth Day and I can use it to get my Pre-K class ready for kindergarten. And another session where I can learn how to build a Jack-O-Lantern and a snowman with Google Slides. Another one that I like is the one where I can learn about "Create Explorers!" insights which encourage age-appropriate, learner-centered technology uses. And of course, the DSN Playground at ISTE 2019 will be filled with ideas from teachers around the country.
