Mr. Pasternack’s Classroom Edit display name

https://www.donorschoose.org/classroom/3086178 Customize URL

My students are good kids who come from a rougher area of Miami. Most of the technology they are used to comes in the form of cell phones and whatever tech happens to be lying around a classroom that they are a part of. They deserve the opportunity to see a new piece of technology that isn't only four inches large. The students are hard workers but can often fall into a pessimistic mindset when they compare circumstances within our school to those of the others schools within our district. New schools and magnets are opening throughout the district and the friends they knew in middle school are being divided, not just by the schools but by the technology in the schools as well. (And the newer buildings, but I don't suppose you guys can do anything about that.) They can do anything they believe they can, and with or without the new technologies they will be able to achieve.
