Hello my name is Alana Cassell and I have been teaching in a Title 1 school for the past 9 years. I have had the amazing opportunity to teach both 1st and 2nd grade. I have taught such a diverse group of students in that time and love that I am able to find a variety of ways to meet the needs of a new group of students each school year. I am a strong believe in having a good balance between the use of technology in the classroom and other teaching strategies, including hands on inquiry based learning, cooperative learning structures, peer learning, etc. This again allows me to meet the needs of all my students. I recently made a hard decision to change school districts and now I will be teaching students that need a little more support in different ways, but who still deserve every opportunity to succeed. I am asking for funding to make this possible, especially when it comes to the use of technology in the classroom. I would appreciate any funding, no matter how small, because it is going to help my students to continue to grow in a way that allows them to love learning. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to my story.
