Mr. Elinson from Hyde Park MA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students eight chromebooks so that they are able to type their notes, papers, use the text-to-speech and speech-to-text functions and use the other miscellaneous function of a computer.
I teach students with autism who are in high school in an inclusion program. This is the first year of the program and still requires resources for all the students to have the resources they need. These students go to all general education classes, they just have some extra support from me and the staff working in my classroom. I love working with these students because they have their own unique personality that is special to the world. Our group of kids are your typical teenagers; they love to joke around and are very caring for one another. Even though we have known each other for only approximately only a month, it already feels like we're a family.
We celebrate the small wins, something that may seem insignificant such as learning about the perimeter in math, is considered a huge win for us.
We do learn about the regular subjects (math, science, history, and english), but we also try to incorporate how to be a functioning member of a community with social skills lessons. Honestly, these kids make coming to work every day a joy!
The Chromebooks that I am requesting will go a long way towards helping the students with their every day school work. Unfortunately, many of these students come from low income backgrounds, where there are a limited number of computers at school and often no computers to use at home. Many of these students benefit from typing notes in class, using text to speech software for reading books, using speech to text software for writing papers and using other functions of the computer for specific accommodations.
Your donation today will make it possible for each of the students 'in my class to have personal computers and will ensure that the students' have the necessary materials to allow them to maximize their potential in school.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
