My Students

My students live in a city that has been ranked the number one most dangerous city in the country. We have a high level of poverty and the problems in the community are felt in our schools.

Many of our students do not have strong parental support and guidance.

We have students that go to school full-time and work several part-time jobs to help sustain the livelihood of their families. While the students have an assortment of obstacles they face every day, I also say that they are hard-working and intelligent individuals. It is my job to ensure that when they graduate; my students are prepared to be functioning citizens in society.

As a teacher in a Title I school district, I observe that many of my students lack the basic necessities for school. I want my students to be successful in everything that they do.

My Project

We have an old Smart Board for our classroom and sometimes the speaker for the smart board works and sometimes it doesn't. Geometry is a difficult class and students need to see real life videos to help understand and visualize the topic. Due to the lack of sounds the videos are not as effective. As a result, many of students, do not do well. It would beneficial if students have working speakers in class so that they can hear the explanations of Geometry lessons. The students will be able to understand and learn better. Our students have a great need for sound and we need a new speaker for our smart board.

Someone has been thoughtful enough to donate us an Surface Pro 4.

But without accessories they were not able to use the Surface to its full potential. We need these accessories in order for us to complete various math activities.
