My Students

As a Title I school where almost all of the children qualify for free lunch, most of my students come from very low poverty households as first-generation Americans here for "The American Dream".

We are located in one of the oldest, yet poorest neighborhoods of Staten Island where some of my students lost their homes due to Hurricane Sandy.

On a daily basis, where I am happy that my students had the opportunity to complete their homework, I am amazed beyond belief at their dedication to reading, writing, and math. There is no greater joy than doing everything I can for my students so that they achieve the "American Dream" in school.

My Project

My students need Chromebooks to interact with for Science and Mathematics. They will use these materials to explore their ability through building, drawing, modeling, and making inferences to the real world. These activities will be used during Science and Math times throughout the day as explore the world around us together. They will be able to use these Chromebooks during our whole group and small group time, learning Math and Scientific skills while working with their peers. This will give the students access to resources not available to them due to the economic needs of the neighborhood and school system.
