My Students

My students are so hard working and they always have an upbeat attitude towards learning. They are ELLs, some even newcomers, which they have to work even harder to understand the lessons. They are eager to learn about any topic or lesson being presented. Our school is a Title 1 school, which means most our students are economically disadvantaged, they receive free lunch. Aside from already being a low income community, the students were deeply affected by storm Harvey and suffered major loses. This has caused the students and their families to not be fully prepared with classroom supplies and school related technology at home.

Our students have a desire to learn and succeed as 21st century students.

My job as a teacher is to provide them with endless opportunities to be engaged and help them succeed in school. The students mean the world to me, because I can see myself in each of them. I believe every child needs someone to believe in them.

My Project

These tablets will enable my students to have better access to educational websites and software at school. To become 21st century students, children need the adequate technology in the classroom. It is inevitable to teach and not have some type of digital resource related to the lesson. We always apply technology to better prepare our students for the promising fast changing future. As third graders, they are learning to be independent learners. Some of our educational softwares at school require the proper technological equipment to serve our students to the fullest. These tablets will help them become 21st century citizens.
