My Students

My students come from various cultural backgrounds: Africa, Iran, Afghanistan, India, China... and these are just a few. We are in a community school and funding right now is very tight. There is no money to spare for the bare essentials. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

The students will spend this year learning the foundation of knowledge and skills they will need to be long-life learners.

They are our future. Why not give them a head-start on their long successful careers.

My Project

Kent Conrad states, "Access to computers and the Internet has become a basic need for education in our society." I am requesting an Acer Chromebook for my second graders. My students are vivacious students who have a natural thirst for learning. It is my initiative to instill a love of learning in all students. In order to tap into all of my students' learning modalities, I would like to differentiate learning to meet all of their needs. This Chromebook will prepare students for the twenty-first century. They need to become lifelong learners and develop a natural love of learning. With this Chromebook, the students can do research within the curriculum to enhance their learning. It is my goal for students to be able to read leveled books on Raz Kids. The books are leveled and the students can practice their decoding, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and more. Raz Kids provides data right at the teachers' fingertips so that she can meet the needs of all learners. This Chromebook can also be used for math differentiated instruction.

Let's get this project funded and ring in the end of the school year with success.

This Chromebook will allow all students to excel in all areas of learning.
