My Students

Our school is a newly opened kindergarten and first grade campus that will continue to expand. The school is located in the central valley of California in the small town of Delano. Delano is a community that is rich in agricultural. Many of the students at the school come from migrant families that are employed by the various agricultural plants in the area. The city is also the home of two maximum state prisons. This brings families to the area in order for them to stay close to each other.

Despite their struggles, our students come excited, energetic, and happy each and every day.

Some travel long distances, but no matter the distance, students are eager to learn. Our students work hard every day for a better tomorrow.

My Project

The innovative nature of mobile technology leaves the door open for endless student centered learning. iPads will allow our students to learn through various applications that center around electronic literature, interactive journalism, and exploring the world through virtual field trips.

At the touch of their fingertips students can embark on a journey that they need only imagine.

Whether it be scientific, mathematical, or fantastical!

Students will learn how to get a jump start on using technology to advance in their academic careers. Having access to this technology in the classroom at a young age will help prepare the students for a future where technology fundamental in their academics and careers.
