This is a special education class serving children with emotional and behavioral disorders. My role as the Special Education teacher is to provide instruction and guidance in the areas of social and emotional well-being, as well as instruct in the different academic content areas. We are a Title I school. Many children in this type of program come from low-income families and do not have access to the necessary technology outside the school setting. They are wonderful kids who desire to experience the same educational opportunities as their peers in the regular classroom setting. They would be very grateful for opportunities to participate in educational programs/projects using updated technology.
We only have access to two Chromebooks in our classroom. Each child needs time on a Chromebook to fully engage in all the programs offered throughout our county. Having more Chromebooks would help with the differentiation we do in our classroom each day with three separate grade levels.
My students work hard in order to earn more time on the Chromebooks.
Giving low-income students access to technology only increases their ability to strive. By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
