My Students

Hello, I’m an elementary school teacher to 32 wonderful students who have really blossomed throughout the year. Some of the students in my classroom have special needs and I feel that they would strongly benefit from having technology at their fingertips.

As teachers, we always want what’s best for our students and I strongly believe that giving children opportunities to work with technology would benefit them tremendously.

We also have a large ELL population in our school, so a majority of the families do not have sufficient funds or resources to give their children access to technology.

I work in a Title One school and funding is not always available for new supplies so I’m reaching out for any help you can give because these wonderful students truly deserve it!!

My Project

With these wonderful Kindle Fires, my students will be able to use technology at the snap of a finger. It will be much easier for them to use the tablets efficiently and they will be able to use any app that will help them with reading, writing and math. Being that my students are mostly ELL students, they really need this technology to enhance their vocabulary as well as their phonemic awareness. It would mean the world to us if you could take the time out to read over the project and donate/help any way that you can! Thank you so much!
