As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous. They like to move and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me.
This computer will assist my students in bringing in new and updated technology in the classroom. I will be able to create Powerpoint presentations, Prezi presentations as well as connect to the internet for fun and educational games.
This computer will also assist my students with their dictation and math needs.
I will be able to upload dictation software so that rather than struggle to write out their essays and homework they will just be able to speak it. With this laptop, my students will be able to access math programs to help them catch up and practice their foundational skills.
