My Students

We are a Title I school with over 75% of our students receiving free and reduced lunches. This means many students come from homes that struggle to provide all necessary resources for students to be successful in school. We also have a high population of English Language Learners who also need additional materials and support to be successful.

Our school is home to a unique special education program, so we also have a higher population of special education students with very individualized needs.

We also recently started implementing play time for our kindergarteners, which has been amazing to watch the students grow through!

My Project

These materials will give more students in my classroom access to technology! Each day students need time to work on a program called FastForward, and currently not all students are able to get on because we don't have enough technology. With this added technology, students will be able to all have equal access in the classroom to learn through this research based program in order to succeed! The cases and screen protectors will keep this technology safe for years to come and in a kindergarten classroom that can be quite a feat! The dinosaur tweezers will allow students to work on their fine motor skills!
