My Students

My students are creative, respectful, attentive, and full of questions! They love hands-on, active, engaging projects, and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions and showcase their creativity! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take risks in order to grow both personally and academically.

Many students in my classroom have difficulty completing projects and assignments at home and in the classroom due to lack of supplies and resources.

Our school in located in an urban district that has suffered numerous cuts in funding over the past years.

At our Title I School, 100% of our student population is a recipient of free school lunch. We also proudly teach children who have military parents stationed at Fort Bragg. Our entire school population is eager to learn and in need of supplies and materials to expose them to opportunities they do not have. Your donation will truly make a difference and my students will be able to reveal their originality.

My Project

This project will provide a charging station so that our 10 iPad devices can charge. My students currently share charging cords so many of our devices are not fully charged. We use these devices daily in all subjects, especially in designing projects in Reading, Science, and Social Studies.

My students are very curious and innovative learners and my lessons target project base learning through the use of technology.

My students need to research many topics and skills and develop presentations that showcase their knowledge and skills. The students conduct their research through our iPad devices. Many students like to create short films, commercials, and news broadcasting scenes through the use of media, such as video editing apps. Charging is needed daily.

Having the ability to charge all devices at once will help tremendously in our day to day use of technology. This charging station will allow each student to be prepared with a fully charged device. It will also free up space in our classroom and keep the charging cords organized. The use of fully charged technology allows my students to be excited about learning and further their understanding of real world problems.
