Mrs. Larsen from Alvin TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My goal is for my students to walk into OUR classroom and feel safe and encouraged so that they can reach their highest potential. I want them to feel inspired to be creative and to take ownership of their education. I want my students to be willing to take risks knowing that it's alright to fail when you're learning.

At our elementary school, 64% of our students are considered economically disadvantaged.

This is my fifth year at the same school, and I am passionate about teaching these students. I face many challenges, but the growth I see in my students is very rewarding.

My Project

As a teacher, I aspire to keep my students engaged in the learning process so that they can be lifelong​ learners. These tablets would allow my students to use a reading program called Imagine Learning, take Accelerated Reader tests to assess comprehension, use Flipgrid to verbalize their learning in creative ways, and use Apps such as TurtleDiary to enhance their knowledge of different reading and writing concepts.

This technology will allow my students to be engaged in learning while I'm working with other students in small group instruction!

These tablets would have a great impact on students growth this year and in the years to come.
