My students are awesome! They deserve all the resources to help them achieve success. My students attend a Title I school that is considered high poverty. We have almost 50% of our students receiving free or reduced-price breakfasts and lunches each day. We even have a weekend food program too.
My students are working extremely hard to be successful with the Common Core curriculum and I want to get them all the resources to achieve this.
I appreciate how hard they work for me each day, and I know they'd appreciate any support you could give them.
I need a resource to step up my professional development. This computer is that resource. I want to use this laptop to take classes online for our math program, Google, and Google Classroom. I'd also use this computer to search the internet for new materials I could use in my classroom. Is there a better seating option for my students? Is there a new material to help teach multiplication, writing a narrative essay, etc. that I haven't seen? This is what this MacBook Air would do for me...give me the opportunity to learn. My students would directly benefit from this information that I learn from using this computer. Their learning will become more personalized. I'd be able to teach the student that's not getting multiplication a new approach that I learned from a class I took online. I'd be able to use all the new Google opportunities for teachers so I'd be able to get my students more technology savvy. I'm excited to see what this laptop will do for my professional growth.
