My Students

Hello. Thank you for previewing my project. I currently live and teach grades K-2 in a remote area of Alaska on the Iditarod Trail. Travel to this location is by small plane only, mail is slow to arrive and shopping is limited to one tiny store.

My students are curious, full of energy and love to do hands on activities.

My class has 4 kindergarten, 3 first grade and 6 second grade students. They love hunting, fishing and berry picking... all of which are subsistence activities they participate in with their families to help provide food for the family table. Travel is restricted by boat on the Yukon River, snow machine during the winter and bush plane service to other villages and into the bigger cities.

My Project

In this multi-age classroom differentiation is an absolute necessity to meet each of their needs. Their reading levels range from non-readers to third grade. Their math levels cover the same extremes. The only way I can meet their needs is by incorporating educationally sound learning applications that allow for individualizations.

Our 1st generation iPads were purchased in 2010 and are on their last leg, we desperately need your help to upgrade them.

Every day my students deal with the frustration of the sound not working, the screens showing green static like behavior, learning apps crashing and freezing. Some of the best apps for them can not be used due to the age of the system (ie Prodigy Math). I am running this project multiple times in order to purchase enough for next year and am fundraising on the side here in our little village to help make this project happen.
