My students need an iPad so I can provide them with interactive, collaborative, technology-rich instructional opportunities that will help me bridge the learning gap so they can learn and compete with their peers across the nation!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My wonderful students have so much potential and really want to go to college. They come from very difficult circumstances with so many challenges going against them. A lot of them have to help take care of their families--they work full-time and help contribute to their families, take care of the home, watch their younger siblings and yet they still have the drive to go to school and succeed because they want to get out of their circumstances. They work harder than anyone else because they know the stakes are so high!
My students have a lot to overcome and your support will be part of the solution.
They live in an area where it is dangerous to walk to school. They are constantly on their guard and it is imperative to create a classroom culture that is safe, respectful and conducive to learning. I want every one of my students to experience the taste of success and mastery of math in my classroom. I want them to have the taste of success so it drives them to continue in their pursuit of excellence.
These bright, hard-working young people are our future!
This project will make a big difference in the way I can teach and therefore, in the way my students can learn. They face so many obstacles and access to quality instruction using current technology should not be one of them in 2018. My students deserve to learn using the latest apps which I can access on this iPad. I will be able to provide high quality visual, interactive and collaborative learning opportunities that are often missing in lower-income classrooms.
This generation learns best with technology that provides visual, collaborative and interactive opportunities to explore new math concepts.
The iPad will allow me to provide my at-risk, socioeconomically challenged students with the latest technology that most of us take for granted. By helping with this project, you are providing the most needy students with opportunities that they deserve and otherwise would not have. You are helping to give them a hand up, to access learning that they need in order to succeed.
The iPad will revolutionize my instruction in so many ways and I know my students will appreciate your generosity and thoughtfulness in considering them and their needs. My students often feel like they have been forgotten and it will mean the world for them to see that our community has come together to provide them with the resources they need to learn! Thank you so much for being part of the solution and helping these wonderful young people succeed in their math education!
