My Students

As a teacher in an urban school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences in a science classroom.

My 5th graders are creative, inquisitive, and eager to learn about new concepts.

How can we close the achievement gap when students do not have the necessary materials to succeed? They like to explore; they love to read and love to be active in the classroom. They are budding ambassadors, world travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and teachers. They are our future and I want to give them a great start to their long, successful career. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me.

My Project

I am asking for a projector to enhance learning, visual support, and allow my students to better themselves through learning. A projector will benefit the lives of my students from every corner of the classroom. Projectors can be used to enrich the learning that is taking place in the classroom and gives students another opportunity to learn a concept. Projectors can be used to bring videos into the classroom or used to show how to do a problem or worksheet. They are a wonderful way to show a quick 5 minute video on the concept you are teaching so that each student has some background knowledge of what is being taught.

Projectors allow for all types of learning to take place in the classroom at a faster and more in depth quality.

Students can utilize all the informational media that is available to them and also gain a clearer understanding of the concept being taught.
