Sunnyside Elementary School teacher Ashley Ziadeh says access to technology has helped shape students' education in today's classroom.
That's why she's using her $250 One Class At A Time grant to buy four learning tablets for her class.
Ziadeh says her second-grade students' reading levels vary from preschool to 4th-grade abilities.
The tablets will help students learn at their own levels through interactive apps and programs.
Ziadeh says she's excited to see students learning through word games, math practice, and new books they'll be able to download for free on the tablets.
"These days everything is technology, so they're going to go home and they're going to play on their parents iPhone and the iPad and then they come to school and they want the same thing. So I've got so many different levels in my classroom and using technology helps me reach all of them," said Ziadeh.
The One Class At A Time grant will also purchase four protective covers for the tablets.
