My Students

My students are a great group of teenagers who are eager to learn about the subjects we teach. They are great at helping each other out, and I am inspired by seeing them overcome obstacles to their learning on a daily basis.

Despite having a variety of disabilities and coming from impoverished backgrounds, they work very hard, every day to improve their social and academic skills.

I want to work through DonorsChoose.org to improve the learning environment in my class and provide my students with more options on how to access the core subjects that I teach.

I work with three wonderful teaching assistants, and we have already created a great environment in which our kids feel welcome and safe. We just need some assistance to make it even better!

My Project

My students received laptops through DonorsChoose.org several years ago. However, the number of students in my class has increased this year and the laptops are beginning to show their age. My students have a variety of disabilities, but all are below grade level in reading and math. They need access to reliable computers to be able to complete their individual assignments using a variety of online programs such as iReady and Moby Max. They also need access to Google Drive to complete projects and assignments in science, social studies and electives classes.

Donations to this project will help us purchase a new Dell Chromebook for our students to use.
