My Students

"For students [of poverty] to succeed, they'll need to become consummate lifelong learners" (Eric Jensen).

For the high poverty students that make up my culturally diverse classroom, that means giving them supports that may traditionally come from home.

From food to technology to emotional stability, my sixth graders require a school that functions as a nurturing academic environment based on strong relationships to build those lifelong learners. For many, school is the sole life guide through the tangled maze of adolescence.

My Project

With these four Chromebooks, the broken technology in my classroom will be replaced, allowing each of my 30 high-poverty students to have access to the digital world.

In my classroom, Chromebooks serve as the doorway to a world of digital storytelling, publication, and an understanding that words are power.

When students in my class have one to one technology, they are able to utilize the skills necessary to succeed in a digital world.

Many of my students utilize gaming technology, but have limited access to the digital academic tools that will support lifelong learning. Chromebooks allow for unlimited access to word processing and a school-wide website developed to showcase high-quality student writing.

With an authentic audience and an urgency for publication, student writing grows from teacher-centered to student-empowered. Chromebooks serve as a portal to writing excellence.
