I will prepare my inner city students to be competitive citizens in the 21st Century! With less than half of my students having access to technology and the Internet at home, this might be a difficult task. However, I am determined to apply for as many grants that I find to get a 1 to 1 ratio of Ipads in my classroom. If I get this grant, my school will match what I receive.
I have researched many Apps that will enhance all academic areas and I am ready to implement. I am lacking the Ipads. I want my student to have the same opportunities as their affluent counterparts who have the ability to research on the Internet at home for classroom assignments. If my students don’t have it at home, I will continue to advocate for them in my classroom. With the Common Core upon us, this is even more important for their success.
With your support, this can be a reality. Imagine the possibilities and I invite you to visit my classroom to see the success.
Thank you for seriously considering Room 42 as you decide the recipients of your grant. You will not be disappointed.
