My students are exceptional kids that face challenges with learning everyday. They are part of a large district, with limited resources, in an underserved community. Most are English Learners, which makes learning and teaching a bigger challenge. In addition, all of my students have IEPs and qualify for Special Education services. My students come to school each day in spite of all the odds against them. They are inspiring students who deserve an equitable learning environment and can succeed when provided with the resources they need.
My students face adversity in and out of school on a daily basis. The vast majority (over 75%) are considered low-income and simply cannot provide their own calculators. While I try to provide them with as much as I can, I am unable to provide each student with a calculator. These calculators will be used as part of a class set in a special day program class, as well as in other classrooms with students for whom I provide services in the general education setting. These calculators will help insure students have the tools to succeed in their Algebra and Geometry courses.
