My Students

I have a classroom full of curious, enthusiastic students that seem to have an insatiable desire to learn! It is a really humbling experience to know that there are going to be 20+ children coming to you everyday in hopes that you have something they can take and apply to their lives.

No matter what home life or their socioeconomic status may be, they are focused and driven in the classroom and that is a blessing!

Their drive is what compels me more to give them everything they want and need. I look forward to teaching material and watching their minds churn out idea after idea.

My goal is to prepare these students for a future that will be technologically and reason based and have them be as successful as they want to be. With help, I know that I can make this happen.

My Project

My students must keep up with the technological advancements in education. Their futures depend on their abilities to work with technology, such as these tablets. The use of technology is what sparks their interest and an ever present component in their education. Education is ever changing, and the method in which to reach them changes as well. Students in my classroom are so eager to learn each day. My school doesn't have much technology resources, so I want to give them what they need to be competitive and successful in this 21st century world.

By donating to this project, you will be assisting my students to use tablets to drive their eagerness to learn in a 21st century world.

You will be helping to prepare them for a world that is guided by technology more each day will allow them to be better prepared for it. With the use of this tablet's apps and functions, reading, writing and math lessons would become more mobile, creative, and engaging. T
