Amy Wagner wants her students prepared for the future. She is a second grade teacher at Eastview Elementary School. She is currently a contestant in the Thank Americas Teachers Grant Contest sponsored by Farmers Insurance Company. This nationwide contest will give a grant of $2,500 to winners for the purpose of further educational opportunities.
If she wins she plans to use the grant money to purchase iPads for the classroom. Her curriculum plan will use a rotation of small groups to gain experience with technology. Various apps would be purchased giving students a variety of areas of study and inspiring them to take an active role in controlling their own education.
Importantly, this would give them the knowledge to pursue their own interests outside of school and lead to lifelong learning. Shaping students with traditional methods and technology will give her students a balance of what they will need to make it in today's ever changing market.
Amy and her students say Thank You in advance for all who take the time to support her.
HELP MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
GOOD WORK & GOOD LUCK!
