Well folks, I am so proud and SO ecstatic to report that I was awarded my grant in the FULL AMOUNT!  You can read my hurried post about the grant writing here

This is a HUGE opportunity for me, a lowly second-year wannabe good teacher.  I have received the most generous compliments and such amazing support from my colleagues and administrators throughout the district. 

Next year I will have a full class set of iPads to use with my kids.  I will also have a cart to house them that syncs all the information to a central computer.  It is going to completely change the way that I teach and the way that my students are engaged in their learning.  I absolutely can. not. WAIT!

If anyone is interested in reading my grant, just let me know in the comments. 


  1. Where did you go to find your grant? Our local foundation does provide mini-grants, but at about $500 each, that won't go very far in terms of obtaining a 1:1 environment.

    I am in the second year of teaching math and science to 5th grade students in Michigan and am always looking to infuse more technology into my day to day teaching.

    Any ideas would be appreciated - congratulations!

  2. Hey Neal,

    I work in a wealthy suburb, so the local foundation is able to provide rather substantial grants. I feel so blessed and excited to share these tools with my kids.

    I'm also a second year teacher and I'll have 5th graders next year. I'll try and keep the blog updated with some ideas for tech use in the classroom. I hope you'll subscribe!
