My Students

I am a fourth grade teacher with the best students anyone could ever ask for. My students are loving, caring and super talented! Having the right tools in the classroom is key to our learning. Having iPads in our classroom would allow us to dive further into our economy with the local programs within our city.

The kids in my class are the greatest kids in the world and I have the privilege and opportunity to work with them day in and day out.

They are a bunch of kids who have bright futures ahead!

My Project

Having iPads in the classroom will allow my students to have the opportunity to become independent researchers. Success starts with something small is very fitting when talking about iPads because it is a small tool that students can use to create growth in academics, financial literacy, entrepreneur, art, writing, reading, and technological skills. We want our kids to grow into well developed members of the community and we can do this by providing them with opportunities to jump start them. My students want to know what type of jobs are out their for them to grow into one day. Giving them iPads to use to help them research, would be so beneficial.
