My Students

Welcome to my Head Start classroom; the spot for eighteen energetic, loving, and delightful PreKinders! These precious children enter my safe and bright classroom each day excited to learn through a variety of well-planned hands-on centers, small group explorations, and entire class activities. Through participation in these activities, my PreKinders develop cognitive and social skills, language abilities, as well as acquire a strong foundation in the knowledge and skills for school success.

My school is a Title 1 school located in a rural area with approximately 450 students who come from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicity, and experiences as well as many who come from families that serve at our local military bases.

Because every student demonstrates a natural curiosity to learn, it's my passion to inspire them and guide them in expanding their love of learning while building knowledge, developing their ability to socialize, and engaging in interactive projects that teach while learning to focus on tasks at hand.

My Project

With the support of quality teacher talk and the deliberate incorporation of iPads into learning opportunities, an iPad is an exciting and real technology tool in our world today, which can transform learner outcomes throughout the day in the classroom. From using it to take photos on a nature walk of the season to display in the science center to learning to write numbers and letters using the Handwriting Without Tears apps or engaging with literature using audio books through iTunes, the iPad can enrich my PreKinders' knowledge in a plethora of ways in all areas.

Your generous donation to my project will improve my classroom by providing me the opportunity to give my PreKinders structured integration of iPads into their learning environment while expanding their learning opportunities as well as transferring their knowledge to the world beyond the classroom.

In addition, in this technological world, all interactions with technology will increase their literacy with it and their desire to excel.
