Urban students traditionally have more academic issues to overcome, and these are no exception. My students are boisterous, curious, excited, and desire a good education but lack many of the things that other schools have.
Studies have shown that all children learn when they have the basic supplies necessary for their education.
We do not have technology in our room for students and want to provide as much as possible for them.
Many of these students are homeless, hungry, unhappy, yet hopeful, and want to learn so they can have a better life. These inner city, African American children are waiting for your help so they can succeed and make a positive impact on tomorrow's world.
For two school years, I have not had a working printer and have been unable to even print out math homework which is expected to go home every day with the two grades that I teach. The teacher I borrowed printer use from no longer has a working printer and we both search through three floors trying to find a place to make copies. Generally I print at home but there is always someone who needs another one, lost it, made a mistake; whatever the excuse, we still need to create a copy.
Studies have shown that students who have access to all the materials they need to succeed are the ones who will go on to be successful in life.
These students have so many strikes against them, that just not having a homework sheet to practice math can make the difference in passing the current grade level!
Your gift can help us make event his simple thing possible for them. We care about our students and want them to be successful. Will you help us do that?
