My Students

The students in my classroom are working on various learning levels. In order to meet the needs of my students, I must differentiate their lessons. I want to be able to inspire them to take control of their learning using technology.

I have 22 first and second grade eager students in my multi-age class.

These children come from a variety of backgrounds and educational experiences. Each child in my class has a desire to learn and strives to do his/her best. Our school is a suburban school with about 40% of students receiving free or reduced priced lunch. My students' abilities range from letter identification sounds to novels in reading and basic number ordering to multiplication in math.

My Project

My class would love to have an iPad with a protective cover, as another way to work on differentiated lessons in reading, math, and to do research. By having an iPad in our room, students will be able to work on material that they struggle with or with new material to accelerate their knowledge. Every child has the right to learn concepts on his or her ability level. This builds self esteem and does not allow a child to feel defeated. All students would benefit from using this type of technology. The future lies within the hands of my students, and providing them the opportunities to succeed in school lays the foundation of their successes tomorrow.

I became a teacher to make a difference in children's lives.

I want to instill the love of learning to my students that my teachers did. I am continuously learning new things as I am a lifelong learner. My students see me as a learner right beside them when it comes to technology. By making a donation to our project, you, too, will be making a difference in the way my students learn and for their love of learning.
