My Students

I teach at a Title I school in Texas affected by Harvey . Many of my students are being raised in single parent households and receive a free or reduced lunch based on their socioeconomic status. A large number of my students do not have access to a computer or technology at home. Limited access to technology may hinder my students from getting ahead early in life. Many of my students do not speak English and technology will help them to reach that goal.

We all know that technology plays a large roll in today's society and with limited proficiency in technology due to the lack of it within our schools it makes it difficult to set our students up for success.

I may not be able to control what happens outside school, but I can certainly control their experiences while they are in my classroom. Finding new ways to integrate technology within our classroom will certainly help my students to continue on a path of academic excellence. I heard a quote over this summer, "Don't let your condition become your conclusion," and I believe with the right resources to help my students I can help them succeed.

My Project

My students who are limited English speakers can use these Chromebooks to be able to access programs like Stemscopes that integrates reading and science. These Chromebooks will help greatly as my students take state mandated tests in both these subjects. They can utilize them to get on programs such as EPIC, Destiny, and MyOn to have books read to them about nonfiction science text. They will allow us to use programs to research, explore, and bridge the gap between two fun subjects. These Chromebooks can make students see the joy in reading all while building vocabulary and learning new things. These Chromebooks will allow my students to dig deeper into learning about both reading and science through a cross-curicular and technological atmosphere!
