My Students

My students are the most curious, intrigued, entry-level programmer type students that you will ever meet. They come to school smiling, ready to take on the challenges of the day. They have to work hard. Many of them are second language learners. All of my students qualify for free breakfast and lunch and once a month, Second Harvest brings my children nourishing fruits and vegetables. Life is not easy for them, but nothing is going to stop them from learning and being the best they can be.

My Project

I was privileged to tour the Levi Stadium Educational Center. In the center were these whiteboard tables. I have never seen so many students just wanting to get into math because they could write on the table. It was easier for them to share ideas, help each other out and just work more effectively.

Several students asked if I would try to get a grant from DonorsChoose to get us a whiteboard table for the class, so here I am, doing what they asked.

My students brought up a key point--no more waste of paper! We can easily see the examples and the work being done, therefore we can learn from each other.

I have been blessed. We have had many donors who gave last year and we had a classroom set of these tables. However this year I got 2 additional students, and unfortunately they do not have a whiteboard table. We have been rotating so all students get a chance.. It would be nice if we could just get one small table for all students.
