My Students

I have exceptional students who have a contagious enthusiasm for learning! As their teacher, I want to provide opportunities that will prepare them for the 21st century. Collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking and problem solving are engaging competencies that inspire and motivate my students to go above and beyond!

My school is made up of over 90% free and reduced price lunch.

The students don't always have access to resources, and I want to help bridge that gap. I want to do everything I can to create a contagious enthusiasm for learning that will inspire and motivate students to be all that they can be!

My Project

This will be the second iPad in my classroom and I have gathered a list of countless free apps that will enhance my curriculum and add depth and complexity in my classroom. This project will provide an exceptional opportunity to match up individual strengths in math and science with apps that will motivate and inspire students to excel. Many of my students do not have access at home and this will greatly help my efforts in bridging that gap.

An iPad provides powerful creative tools, interactive curriculum, and an endless supply of apps- Let the Adventure Begin!

There are many apps that are available that support computer programming! I have been fortunate enough to receive many innovative resources that include Dash and Dot robots and Ozobots through DonorsChoose.org. My students can't get enough time with these resources and their computer programming skills are getting stronger every day! However, they don't always get the opportunity to code because I don't have the technology. iPads have the required apps that would make this possible and the apps I need do not cost anything! I just need an iPad!!

Technology is a necessary tool for students and it will prepare them for a successful future. They will learn to communicate, collaborate, think critically and use digital tools. I want to do all I can and teach my students to be successful and maximize their potential. These types of opportunities make it happen and I can't wait to begin!
