My Students

I am fortunate to be the teacher of a wonderful group of eager-to-learn first graders at an inner city Title I school in Los Angeles. Most of the students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of the students are also learning English as a second language. Despite the adverse area they live in, my students come to school every day wanting to learn and work hard. I want them to have the opportunities and resources that they desire and are necessary to help them achieve whatever dream they have for themselves.

My Project

The document camera and projector will give a direct visual of lessons as well as allowing students to demonstrate their skills in math, reading and writing for their peers in an engaging way. Students are eager to show off what they know to others using technology!

The document camera and projector will provide my students with an excellent visual of their fellow classmates' math strategies as they model, demonstrate and explain what methods they've used to solve math problems.

These items will also allow students to view educational videos projected onto our whiteboard that supplement a lesson such as science experiments, life science videos and biographical videos of notable people in history.

All students, especially those who need visual reinforcement, will benefit from being able to see smaller textual materials projected onto our whiteboard and be able to follow along much more effectively.

By donating to our project and providing a document camera and projector to our classroom, you would be providing an invaluable learning tool that helps students be actively engaged in their own and each other's learning!
