Technology Is The Way to The Stars

My Students

My students are bright, full of wonder and curiosity. They are happy little bundles of joy. In spite of the many challenges they face growing up in a low-income, high-poverty part of our city, with parents who many times are struggling to provide for their families, my students show up to school every day eager and motivated to learn.

My students are our future, and in order for them to have a chance to be successful in the real world, they need learning opportunities that challenge them and prepare them for our evolving world full of technology and innovative jobs.

My goal is to provide them with as many tools and experiences as possible so that they may begin to build a solid foundation that will better prepare them for the many challenges ahead and beyond. The social and economic differences are evident in the academic gaps my students struggle with, but I want to give my students access to the same opportunities many others have in other parts of the world.

My Project

My students need 1 Apple iPad. The iPad will allow my students an opportunity to enhance their educational experience which otherwise would not be possible in their home and classroom environment, being that we are located in a poverty-stricken area. The students will use the iPad during center time. A lot of the parents in our community many times have to decide whether to put food on their children's table, pay their bills or acquire some form of technology for their children. These are the facts of life and my wish is to provide these children with a pleasant, technology-rich alternative to the hard reality of the life that they live on a daily basis.
