I am proud to call myself a lifelong Brooklynite. I'm even prouder to say that I teach Language Arts and Reading to a terrific group of 8th Graders at a Title I middle school in beautiful Brooklyn, New York. Many of my students face challenges on a daily basis that most of us cannot even dream of, yet they are always looking to the future and for a better life. They know that with hard work and determination, they can make the world a better place.
In my ongoing quest to fully integrate technology into my classroom for my students' use, I am currently working to upgrade all of the outdated technology in my classroom. Generous donors like you have gifted us with all of the technology my students use with the exception of the SMARTBOARD and two ancient PC computers. While my technology turnover is underway, my students can still use the less up to date technology if we can obtain new laptop and iPad chargers.
You can not be a 21st century student without 21st century technology.
For some of my students, the technology they interact with at school is the only technology available to them (as they do not have computers at home), therefore, some technology is better than no technology. By having access to this technology, they will be able to enhance their work, give it a professional look, and become more college and career ready.
My students must be able to use the latest technology or they will not be able to succeed in the real world. Help bring us in to the 21st century where we can learn and succeed better.
