My Students

We are a Title I school, where 98% of my students qualify for free lunch. Most of my students don't have books at home, nor can they afford basic school supplies. Their only exposure to learning and reading is through our classroom and school resources. My goal is for them to get the right materials so that we can focus on active learning.

We are a Learning Community school, with a variety of students, some who have learning and emotional disabilities.

My students have limited life experiences. Most of them rarely leave our neighborhood, and I know how important it is for them to be exposed to diversity and different ways of thinking. These are kids with so much potential, but at the same time, they need positive venues for that energy. I witness, every day, how proud they are, when they complete class assignments or when they help a classmate. Still, we can do better, and I know that there is room to grow as learners and as members of our community.

My Project

I am requesting Chromebooks that will enable my class to strengthen their tech skills, we are aiming to have Chromebooks for at least one small group.

We need these Chromebooks so my students can work in Computer-Based Learning programs in Math and ELA.

This way, my students will learn how to use an e-classroom. Also to practice how to create, modify and keep their work in an e-portfolio.

Most of my students' interaction with technology is reduced to the use of smartphones. These Chromebooks will introduce my students to technology that promotes and deepens learning.

My students need to be skilled when working in an e-document and learn how to flawlessly search, create, and modify multimedia presentations. These skills are essential for their future and we need to start practicing them now!
