My Students

At the end of the last school year, we were all hunkered down in our individual homes, trying to process all the changes in our lives. I was in daily contact with 30 of my 150 students. We communicated daily, but it was a huge challenge. Many of my students didn't have access to technology and so things were not equitable.

These kids are now back in school and learning in a new normal that requires them to wear masks and stay 6 feet apart at all times.

Many of my students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds, with limited resources available. I want to help alleviate this.

Our school, built in 1965, is a Title I school in Nevada, serving 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students with 100% participation in the free breakfast and lunch program.

Students are grouped in teams to build relationships with faculty, staff, and peers. This allows them to keep the same core set of teachers who will stay with them for their entire middle school journey. Team Texas is home to a diverse group of young people all striving to do the best they can with the materials they are

My Project

At this time we are teaching using a hybrid model where most of the students come to school on one day and complete virtual learning at home on the second day. Most of the students at my school do not have access to a computer at home, they rely solely on their personal phones. This is not always ideal since the screens are so small that it is difficult to see to complete work let alone type a paper. Some of my students attend school everyday, but also need to complete the virtual assignments using just a phone in the classroom. Technology has vastly changed education during the pandemic, requiring students to be able to "be connected" in order to have access to learning materials.

If I was able to get this laptop for my classroom, I would be able to let my students complete their "beyond the building" assignments on a district approved laptop.

My district will only accept and service computers from a list of approved devices and this computer would allow me to be on the school district server and get all the programs installed that are used for distance learning. It would also make it easier for my students to complete their work.
