My Students

My students have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic in multiple ways. The majority of my students lack the technology resources needed to attend online lessons or complete online work and activities. Many of my students also lack internet access, which is why I would like to provide resources for all students. This project is for students who have high, medium, low, or no technology access.

Despite the challenges, my students have still been eager to continue learning.

They have continued to triumph and transition to this new world of distance learning like troopers. My students have persevered through these uncharted times, and I would love to continue to feed their hunger for learning, whether near or far!

My Project

This project is extremely special, because it will help my current students as well as any students in the future! This project will make sure that EVERY single student has access to their own iPad no matter of their social-economic status. This will ensure students will be able to log in to all virtual classes and use all platforms without any issues. Technology is the new way of learning and my students deserve an equal opportunity to be a part of that change!!! Together we can make that happen! It is important to continue to push for equality and inclusiveness within the education space.
