My Students

My school is located in the Lower East Side of Manhattan and serves a diverse population of learners. Our students come from different socioeconomic classes and backgrounds. We serve both general education and special needs students.

Our school encourages respect for all learners and understanding of reaching individual learning goals.

To help all of my students to succeed and be college ready, I want to provide them with all the resources possible to make learning accessible and fun. We, both the teacher and students, feel good to be able to complete projects and activities with the proper materials needed.

My Project

The MacBook I got through DonorsChoose from a few years ago started "acting up" since the beginning of this school year with no trackable reason. It started when the trackpad stopped working whenever the MacBook is put to sleep. I was able to cope with the problem by using an external mouse. However, the problem has gotten progressively worse over time. The screen now freezes randomly and the only way to fix it is to restart the laptop or do a SMC or PRAM reset . The Google search results indicated that this is a known problem that does not have a proper fix yet. I have lost numerous work from such problem.

The laptop is needed to create lessons, monitor student progress and an essential tool in technology based professional development opportunities.

It becomes increasingly hard to plan lessons in a timely manner without a proper working laptop that I can carry around. Your donation will help to make a teacher's life a lot easier.
