My Students

I teach at a Title I school that was affected by Hurricane Harvey. All of my students are bilingual, whose primary language is not English. These obstacles have not prevented them from coming to school eager to learn. They are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative.

As English language learners, my students enjoy and need all the resources possible to become successful.

Some students have parents who root for them but most don't have the help at home due to the parents' inability to speak, read, or write in English. My desire is to provide the support they need to be successful and productive students.

My Project

My bilingual students are in need of these Samsung tablets to continue to build a foundation in their reading and math skills. Most of them do not have computers, tablets, or internet access at home. Although it is not my responsibility to provide them access to technology in their home, I will try to find a way for all of my students to have access to them in my classroom.

As we all know, we have to differentiate our instruction to reach all of our students.

Having these tablets, will provide a fun, hands-on, interactive, and engaging way to do this while also providing research-based programs.

The cases and screen protectors will keep my mind at ease while my 2nd graders use them!
