My Students

The use of technology in the classroom is necessary in the a modern classroom. Students are motivated to learn when they get to experience the best that the 21st century has to offer.

I teach a great group of third grade students in a low-income community.

Most of them are English Language learners. I always try to provide my students with the same learning opportunities that other students receive. In this age of technology, there are many ways to get students more interested in learning. This can be difficult when we have limited technological resources.

My Project

We have an LCD projector in our class that allows us to do so much during our regular school day. The only problem is that my laptop is very slow and sometimes freezes on us during our lessons. We are requesting a new laptop which we will use for every subject. Students will be able to present their PowerPoint presentations. We will see instructional videos that go with our math program. We will use the laptop to research science and social studies topics as a class. Finally, students can share their writing assignments in front of the class with the new laptop

A new laptop will allow us to continue using technology on a daily basis.

Students will learn about the importance of giving to others. Thank you in advance for considering our classroom, and for caring so much about education.
