Technology Time: Help Create Minds That Will Change the World!

My students need Apple iPads. I currently do not have any iPads. I truly believe that technology is changing the future of education. Please consider donating to my wonderful students!

My Students

My students are extremely creative, driven to learn, and always keep me on my toes. They are a blend of comedians, energetic athletes, kind nurturing spirits. My first graders have reminded me how to laugh until my belly hurts and to speak the truth as often as possible!

I teach a first grade inclusion classroom full of students with amazing potential and motivation to learn.

Watching my students grow into their own personalities and show not only myself, but the world what they are capable of is one of the most amazing experiences ever!

My Project

I teach the 1st grade inclusion room, which, means multiple forms of learning are VITAL! In order to teach my students to the best of my ability and help them tap into their full potential I need iPads! Technology is changing the way students learn and opening new doors for differentiated instruction in the classroom! I am working very hard to get access to iPads to accompany my instruction and help me engage my students in new and exciting ways!

If I can provide iPad's to my students I can teach them in multiple ways that have been proven to help students (especially students with exceptionalities) learn more efficiently: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, interactive, written, and much more!

I currently have no iPads. I have very limited technology access in my classroom. iPad's will help me motivate and teach my students, I will be able to use the technology beneficially in all subjects and curriculum! Please consider donating to my classroom!
