My Students

Being a teacher during these uncertain times has been the hardest thing I've ever done in 21 years as an educator. We're all trying to incorporate meaningful lessons via technology, getting technology to students in need, making sure everyone has basic supplies to complete assigned work...It is a challenge to say the least.

My Project

At home learning is not the ideal situation for students who are usually in the classroom. To many of my students, going to school is the one constant they have in their lives. That is why I am still committed to delivering fun and meaningful lessons for my students. However, I'm doing this with little to no resources. Which is why I'm writing this grant.

Video recordings for instructional lessons is what teachers and students are faced with today.

Having a tripod will create a steady video and for me to move freely as I would if I were in the classroom. The chart paper allows students access to visuals of the content being taught, and the ink allows me to continue to print supplemental work for my students without a home printer. Any donation to this project helps me do a little bit more for my kids and bring some light into their day.
