My Students

I teach at a public elementary school in Philadelphia. There are approximately 450 students in grades K-8. Students receive free breakfast and lunch to help them focus on learning. We have implemented a STEAM educational approach to support students as they collaborate and innovate.

My students have unlimited energy and curiosity when it comes to learning and will benefit greatly from your generosity.

This year our school plans to continue with the STEAM model and enhance individual student support to meet the needs of all learners.

My Project

The Chromebooks and charging station will enable students to integrate technology into their day. My students engage in small group projects and individual online interventions which require access to computers. I can better meet students' needs with additional Chromebooks.

The Chromebooks are an investment in increasing reading and math levels through collaboration and individual learning opportunities.

Students will be able to build background knowledge by researching and presenting group projects. Students will have access to online resources that provide targeted interventions at their level. Limitations are removed with technology and learning is enhanced.

My students are future innovators, educators and leaders. Access to Chromebooks will help them meet their goals and thrive.
