My Students

Many of us consider our smart phones, tablets, and computers as technology we need to function in our society today. We are exposed to them from an early age and they became important tools in our education. My students, however are facing a lack of technology in their growth and development.

I teach in beautiful south Florida.

My school is a Title I school-meaning that our students come from families that are living in poverty situations. The families of my students struggle to provide their basic needs. Often they rely on the school to help with everything from food and clothing to supplies they need to learn. The majority of the parents in our community do not speak English or have limited English skills. With them facing so many obstacles to survive, any of the "extras" in life like computers are only a dream for them to be able to give their children.

My Project

The resources I am requesting of two iPad Minis to use during our literacy block will greatly aid in their learning. I teach in the Dual Language Program. This means that I teach two classes a day with a Spanish speaking teacher as my partner. Our students learn in both English and Spanish all subjects. During my literacy block they will be learning reading skills in English. By enabling us to have the iPad minis, I can not only expose my students to the type of technology they often only dream of having, but it will also help bridge the gap between their native language and English. There are many educational Apps that strengthen reading skills in English and Spanish. Many of them work by using both languages and will reinforce skills they are learning both from myself and my partner.

Any donation you can make toward this project not only helps children to be better, life long readers, but will also expose them to the technology we sometimes take for granted.

Being able to teach and reinforce skills in both English and their native language is so important. My students come from challenging situations and anything I can do to in terms of extra technology in my classroom will no doubt benefit their growth and development.
