My Students

Good day, I am looking to get some updated tools for may mathematics classroom. I teach roughly 100-120 students a day and I am hoping to get them access to tools we use literally everyday!

My students are from a working class neighborhood in Chicago, Il.

We do everything from basic number sense to high school level algebra and geometry. I want them to have access to the tools they need, and with your help they can. My students apply and are accepted to some of the top schools around Chicago and I hope they can continue that trend with your help.

We want to keep up with those around the city and we are looking for the tools to make that happen.

My Project

Our students make so many great memories, but we would love your help solidifying the memories with these cameras. These will be used by teachers and students alike to commemorate the amazing things we do together and learn. We will use them for yearbook and class websites alike.

You can help these students cement these memories with these entry level digital cameras.

As the students learn to use the cameras they will develop skills that they can use in future endeavors whether it be arts or media. Please consider donating to make these cameras available to our awesome students.
