My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I want to provide my students with engaging learning experiences.

Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive free lunch based on their socioeconomic status.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.

My students are loving, empathetic, caring, and extremely hard working. They deserve the absolute best and I hope you will consider partnering with me to ensure they have what they need to succeed in education and beyond.

My Project

State standardized testing is moving toward technology. Students are required take several benchmark tests online, as well as, state standardized testing. I want my students to be prepared, and the only way I can do that is if I have enough materials and supplies, such as tablets to help them succeed.

This project is requesting an iPad and cases to add to my technology center.

This tablet will be an amazing asset to our classroom. iPads help to continue the growth of students in both reading and math. This iPad will allow for students to easily access online software that provide teachers with necessary information in order to drive instruction. I am also requesting cases to keep them from getting damaged.
