Mr. Sandman’s Classroom Edit display name

  • MS 51 William Alexander
  • Brooklyn, NY
  • Nearly all students from low‑income households

Students are from Brooklyn, NY. Well, for that matter many of them are transplants from other parts of the world. This classroom is diverse, with many students speaking their parents' primary language at home, while learning English at school and in their social lives outside of school. My school culture is changing as we continue to expand our Special Education programs/ELL programs. Our school receives inadequate funding for technology and we haven't seen a new server or computer since 2007! We are way behind in the technology front. As classroom teachers we receive a meager $80 annually for classroom supplies. Through Donors Choose we can potentially give our students the skills needed to be high school, college, and career ready. The classroom contains 34 students with one third of our students classified as 'high-needs' students with learning disabilities. Many students lack technology access in their homes and therefore they lack basic technology skills and proficiency.
