When Can I See You Again?

Help me give my students valuable e-learning sessions where they can see me during that time through the camera of a new laptop.

My Students

"Teachers who love teaching, teach children who love learning."

As I finish my twenty-third year of teaching, I continue to follow this mantra in my classroom.

I teach 30 wonderful students who come from poverty. My students are extremely motivated, and they are genuinely respectful of each other. They are lovers of learning, and I am truly grateful to be their teacher this year. They come to school with smiles on their faces, and they are eager to learn. They are from varying ethnic backgrounds. Most of them come from homes that are struggling financially. My school families and I are struggling to do e-learning together.

During this difficult time of e-learning, I have been doing e-learning groups with my students. However, my school laptop does not have a camera. When I do my teaching, the students can hear me but they cannot see me. I would love to be able to see my students and have my students see me during our e-learning time. I miss my students so much and it would mean the world for me to see them during this time.

My Project

My amazing first graders have been working incredibly hard on their learning websites, workbook pages that were sent home, and reading their take-home books. I am so proud of them and miss my friends every day. My first-grade friends would benefit greatly from me having a laptop with a camera so that I can see them during our e-learning sessions. My current school laptop does not have a camera feature, so the students can hear me but they can't see me.

This project will provide me with a laptop that has a camera and a microphone so that I can use these tools to enhance my remote learning experiences with my students.

It would mean the world to me to be able to see my students and that they could see me during our e-learning time. Thank you.
