My Students

The students I work with cannot wait to learn. We have many who arrive early and stay late in my classroom for just a little extra access to our limited technology.

My school is high-poverty, with all of my students qualifying for free or reduced price lunch and many students coming from the three neighboring transitional housing developments.

We have a very diverse set of needs. I have a particularly high number of students whose primary language is one other than English. Fifteen percent of my students started the year with limited or no English proficiency. In the area I focus on, math, about 40% of our students perform about a year below expectations on our end-of-year assessments. Eighteen percent receive special education services. All of my students are curious, growing academically, and capable of excellent work.

My Project

My students have really excellent computer-based programs that meet their varied needs. We have a program that newcomers to our country learn English. We have a literacy program that supports reading, writing, grammar, conventions, and vocabulary. We have an extraordinary math program that helps students visualize math concepts. But as our school has grown each year, our technology allocation has not. Our district has provided the programs, but not the devices my class needs to gain access to the them. With few devices and more and more students, kids rarely get the practice these excellent programs provide.

With these computers, my students will be able to gain access to research-based programs that will help them make tremendous gains in their learning.

Every day, I'll provide students direct, targeted instruction in small groups. Then, based on individual needs, students will be directed to use technology to practice the language or math skills they need. Based on assessments I conduct and reports from these programs, the process will continue: I'll teach students direct lessons that meet their needs, then they'll practice using technology.

I have very high goals for my students each year. In order to meet grade-level expectations, most have to make more than a year's worth of progress. With this technology, I can combine expert teaching and focused computer-based practice to help my students's learning goals blow right open...teach, tech, boom!
