As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, 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, they love to read 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. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day by doing this in a creative and positive way. I am hopeful to inspire my students to continue on a path of academic excellence.
My students would love to have the latest technology in our classroom. These iPads would enhance their learning. There are many apps for the iPad2 that will help my students with independent practice in reading, writing, and math. We can also connect it to our Smart board for whole group instruction.
Having the opportunity to have these iPads in our classroom would be amazing and it would definitely keep my students excited and engaged in their learning.
These donations will allow me to have more technology in my classroom, which will also allow me to prepare my students for their future. Our society is dependent on technology and I want my students to become comfortable with its use.
