My Students

My eager Accounting students are highly motivated to succeed! They are high school juniors and seniors preparing to enter the work force. This fine group has made it to the upper-level Business classes and need all the tools they can use to empower their future employment.

These students demonstrate strong work ethic with computer skills, punctuality, and responsibility.

They are fearless when it comes to technology and, as children of the 21st century, they need to be prepared to use a variety of tools to engage their world.

My Project

My Accounting students need to know how to operate office equipment to succeed in the business world that they will soon be entering. These adding machines will help us to work accounting problems with lots of BIG numbers and immediately check work for accuracy.

The donations to this project will help to improve my students' understanding of and competency in authentic, meaningful accounting concepts.

The adding machines will be used on a daily basis to work a multitude of problems and simulations. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in accounting, and this project will only help enrich their experiences going back to basics. These students will be ready to conquer the world of accounting!
