My Students

My students come into my classroom every morning eager to learn and ask questions. They enjoy hands on science experiments and love projects that are challenging and engaging! Science and engineering is truly a subject that they seem to be extremely interested in. They surprise me each and every day by how much they excel in daily activities that I prepare for them. My students truly bring a smile to my face everyday!

Almost all of the students that I teach come from low income families and underprivileged neighborhoods.

With the rise of technology in this day and age, technology has become a great necessity when it comes to education. It is clearly a skill that is required in completing problems solving activities and practice work.

Each and every child in my classroom is devoted to learning, although there is a lack of supplies and resources. As a teacher, I try to incorporate an array of learning strategies to ensure that each students needs are met. They are honestly a terrific group of kids that are ready to face a new challenge each year!

My Project

As we all know technology has become a great necessity when it comes to education. Having HP Chromebooks in the classroom would really help my students learn and engage in scientific concepts. Therefore, HP Chromebooks would be of a great advantage to my students.

Providing students with HP Chromebooks will truly make a difference in my students' education.

As a teacher, I try to incorporate an array of learning strategies to ensure that each students' needs are met. Each and every child in my classroom is devoted to learning, although there is a lack of supplies and resources.

With Chromebooks my students will learn to excel, be competitive in a competitive world, and apply learning to the real world.

These Chromebooks would really be a marvelous addition to my classroom.
