Appy Time for Learning


The purpose of this Fund shall be to support the efforts of the Donor to establish a fund that will support academic achievement for elementary students through technology thereby creating a learning environment that is self-directed, interactive, collaborative and focused on the diverse needs of the learner in an ever increasing technological society.

My desire to start Appy Time For Learning, an iPad based nonprofit, started with observing that many children in low income and minority communities have inadequate access to technology in their homes. Due to school time constraints, the deficit continues because of their need for additional tech time.

Appy Time For Learning is designed to improve children’s academic achievement by instructing them on a 1:1 or small group basis using a variety of apps on the iPad. Collaborating with the teacher to determine individual needs and chart progress is an essential part to the success of the program. When a child receives additional individualized instruction that builds on their strengths while targeting specific needs, success is right around the corner. Appy Time For Learning is focusing on building successful digital citizens for today and tomorrow

My Story

I am a retired elementary school teacher with a passion to learn and to inspire that same passion in every child. I taught regular and special education in Howard County Schools for thirty years. Throughout that tenure, I have observed the importance of technology as a tool for learning and expressing ideas in today’s society. Young children are “digital natives.” They love using technology in the learning process. I have observed children become much more engaged in learning activities when technology is used in an interactive and self-directed approach.
