My Students

I have been teaching at my school for 18 years, and I love it! Often I am asked why I haven't tried transferring to a school closer to home. My response is always the same: I do not mind the drive because I work at the best school in the county. The students at my school come from different cultural backgrounds and socioeconomic levels, and the diversity makes for an incredible experience.

My students are wonderful!

I teach a group of 20 kindergartners who participate in the Extended Foreign Language Program known as EFL. They are the only kindergarteners at my school who take an hour of Spanish every day regardless of their ethnicity. They never cease to amaze me with how much they grow socially, physically, and academically in their first official year of school.

My Project

I am requesting a desktop computer to replace one of the computers in my classroom that is no longer functional. Many of my students do not have access to computers at home, and therefore their only access to technology is in my classroom. Last year, I had four working computers that my 20 students shared on a daily basis. That was not the best ratio, but it was doable. With only two working computers, the amount of time each child is allotted is not sufficient for them to accomplish their learning goals. They work independently at the computers and centers during my Differentiated Instruction time. In conclusion, my students would really benefit from having an additional computer in my classroom.
