My Students

I work with a very diverse group of 5th grade students. They are all very different and have their own special qualities. I work in a low-income district where getting pencils and supplies from home for students is very difficult. I have some students who get what they need, and other students who struggle day to day. I want to help them experience the best that school has to offer, without the stress of contributing. I am able to stock up on supplies and help out occasionally on my own, and I am also able to get some of the supplies from my school supply budget. However, there is only so much to go around.

My Project

Everyday, we learn about new resources and technology that are available in the world. As time goes by, more and more will be moving away from pencil and paper and moving toward technology. Kids need to understand technology and be taught the appropriate way to use it. Unfortunately, most of my students don't have the use of technology at home. We do have some resources in school, but those resources are scarce and rarely updated or working properly for use.

In our classroom, I would love to introduce the students to more technology and software programs to help enhance their learning.

I would love to teach them how to use Fire Tablets in a positive way. I also like that the Kindle can be used in multiple ways. I have asked for them through the school, but unfortunately there isn't enough money in the budget.
