Computer Wanted For Teaching

The cost of a desktop computer from CDW Inc. is $709, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I have been a 6th grade teacher in N.Y.C. for the past two years. I teach in a school that has only a chalkboard, desks, and chairs. I have bought so many supplies in the past two years for my students. Unfortunately, the students are in need of so much. My school has one television for three floors. I have tried to be the best teacher that I can be, however, without technology, even an overhead, it has been extremely challenging. I want more than ever to be able to allow the students to use a computer and go online and do research for the topic at hand. For example, when I teach Science and teach about the human body, I want to be able to allow the students to take the lesson further and explore it with technology. Several students in my class have never been on a computer! I want to expose them to technology, since we are in year 2006. I teach Social Studies, Science, English Language Arts, and Enrichment to my 6th grade students. I would love to receive a computer. This would be tremendously appreciated by all of my students. Thank you for your consideration.
