My Students

Our school is a Title I school which means 90% or more students receive free or reduced-price lunch. My students are from low income households where most come from non-English speaking parents.

Sadly, many of my students have failed 3rd grade already and began this school year with minimal resources.

Despite the hardships they endure, my students are eager to come to school to learn every day. They enjoy participating, working collaboratively and motivating each other to work hard, however they are very limited on their access to technology. TOGETHER, with a little push and help, I am CONFIDENT our class will succeed and surpass expectations! NONE OF US IS AS STRONG AS ALL OF US!

My Project

In elementary school, 3rd grade is a crucial year for both teachers and students. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to be successful academically. My students would really benefit from having access to technology in the classroom.

Due to the Hurricane Maria disaster, our school and my class have openly received students in our classroom but unfortunately many of these same students do not have access to technology outside of school.

We would love to have a place in our classroom where my students are able to sit and practice on their own laptops for tests, quizzes or even doing research.

Having these laptops would allow my students to have access to technology during school hours as well as before and after school. With these devices, students will be able to come to class early or stay after school, and use the laptops to complete their necessary online activities and lessons.

Technology has become the essence in our learning world today, it would be a disservice to many students that because of a natural disaster they are not able to fulfill their educational responsibilities out of the classroom. Your donation will allow my students to feel motivated and confident in their learning!
