My Students

Our population of English Language Learners (ELL's) has grown. They are working hard to make a new life in a new country. The kids are excited to be in school, to learn English, get an education, and make their families proud.

My Project

Imagine learning a new language in a new country. It's hard, but even harder when you have to wear a mask, another obstacle when you're trying to start over with a clean slate.

You can help give English Language Learners an actual Kleen Slate - a tool that will help them communicate in their classes.

Students will use the paddles to show understanding of lessons in their classes - especially core subjects of math, English, history and science. Students will practice their writing skills and teachers can give immediate feedback. These paddles will be a great tool for students who have a lot of hurdles in front of them.
