I have had the privilege of teaching at one of the country's most unique charter schools. I teach an outstanding group of second graders at a charter school located in the South Bronx!
My school is a high performing charter school that was designed to include a close partnership with one of New York City's largest social service providers in order to meet the needs of NYC students who are most at risk, those involved in the child welfare and foster care systems.
Two-thirds of the students enrolled at my school are involved in the child welfare system. The school's goal is to create an educational environment that takes into account the impact of abuse, neglect and poverty on a child's readiness to learn. While our mission is focused on children who are involved in the child welfare and foster care systems, many features of this learning environment are also supportive and attractive to families in the general community.
Chromebooks will allow students to participate in academic learning programs such as Lexia Core 5 and Edmentum. Students will be able to remediate and enhance both math and reading skills at their own pace.
All kids love technology, but not all of them know how much technology can aid and foster their learning.
Let's work together to help our scholars use technology to their advantage. These Chromebooks will help scholars with reading, writing, and math!
An additional 7 Chromebooks in our classroom will allow my second graders to explore and use technology and help prepare them with 21st century skills. We will take assessments on the Chromebooks and use them daily for both reading and math differentiation.
