My Students

When you enter our classroom, you will see a room of resilient children who are trying their best to be kind and loving. The reading levels in our classroom range from kindergarten to 4th grade. Some of my students have had wonderful school experiences, while others have struggled. However, when they enter our classroom we work hard to put our previous struggles aside and learn.

These students come to school to learn and grow; we work hard to instill a drive to go far in life.

My student body consists of children with English as their second language, struggling readers, students with multiple learning styles, students with learning disabilities, and gifted children. The state provides our entire student base with free breakfast and lunch to ensure our students have the nutrition and energy to learn. We attend a Title I school, meaning that a majority of my students come from low socioeconomic situations. This puts my students already at a disadvantage compared to their counterparts at other schools in our district. We work hard to bridge the gap in their education because we all know education is what can change a life.

My Project

My class is a hybrid teaching environment. I want to do the study of financial literacy with the kiddos. They need to use electronic devices so that they can understand and appreciate the value of finance. They will be purchasing pretend stocks and watching them rise or dip. They will also learn how they can balance and manage a savings account. They will be utilizing kid stocks, and budgets that were created for teaching financial literacy in young minds. My kiddos at school have access to laptops but my kiddos at home do not. I want to ensure that they are all on an equal footing.

We want each child to have access to an Amazon Fire HD tablet so that they can set their financial literacy in motion.

With this understanding, they will grow up to be mathematical geniuses with their financial endeavors. We want them to retain the information and not just learn it and carry this with them into their futures. This project will ensure two tablets are removed from our needs list, as well as ways to charge them!
