We are a K - 5 grade school located in Tennessee. The student population at our school is 67% economically disadvantaged. Many of these children come from homes where day to day survival is the main priority and school is pushed to the side. Due to this, a large percentage of my students do not have computers at home. School is the only opportunity they have to use technology. Despite these challenges, our school continues to beat the odds and be a top performing school. Students are challenged to leave everything behind when they enter my classroom and learn everything their minds will soak up. Because of this school wide encouragement, these students are achieving and showing huge gains. These students deserve every opportunity we can give them to go as far as they can possibly go. I truly believe improved technology can help with this goal.
