My Students

My students are incredible. I have twenty-four, motivated, English Language Learners who are eager to learn. My students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds with limited resources available to them. We are a Title I, Performance Improvement School with one hundred percent of our students on the free lunch program. Many parents work two jobs and are struggling to support their families.

Though their environment may not be conducive to learning, my students have an insatiable love of learning.

I know that if we provide them with the right support, resources, and opportunities, they can experience success.

My Project

A thousand thank yous to DonorsChoose.org for getting our Surface Go funded. We forgot to order the stylus pens so students can also use it as a dry erase board. They can annotate and create notes as well. I can have my students practice manuscript writing as well as a math computation tablet.

We’ve already used it for researching Maya Angelou, Alma Thomas, and George Washington Carver.

Our next topic will be The Lorax and we will tie in science by discussing environmental issues. I will show them videos on deforestation happening today and how they can make a difference.

The Type Hub adapters will be used to connect to the Surface Gos so we can hook it up to our projector. We can also use it to connect a mouse, printer, and even use it as a memory card to transfer data and pictures to a flash drive.
