I teach ESL students in a Title 1 Vanguard school in Houston, Texas. My students are lively and hardworking children. They come in class every morning ready and excited to learn new things. They want to succeed and it shows in their daily behavior and work ethic.
Many of my students do not have access to technology at home.
They are limited in their experiences outside of their neighborhood. Although many lost their homes or belongings during Hurricane Harvey, they are still excited about coming to school to learn.
We just got funded for an iPad station, which will allow my students to work on their reading and math skills. There are several programs our district works with in terms of literacy and mathematics. I have seen the progress that students make when they can use those applications regularly. This center will provide daily practice in mathematics and reading.
We want to ensure the durability of our technology center by protecting the iPads with OtterBox case.
Students are very excited when they get to learn through technology and accidents happen. Though my classes are quite careful, I want to make sure that we protect the generous donation that was made to us.
