Computer Chairs and Keyboards and Mouses, Oh My!

My students need 4 chairs, 5 keyboards each with a mouse, and 5 headphone kits in our classroom in order to be college and work force ready!

My Students

Computer skills are no longer negotiable in our society. If you do not know how to use a computer, you might not be able to work! Please help my kids become ready for college and the work place by helping them gain these skills.

My kids are at-risk students in one of the largest school districts in Texas!

They are doing amazing work and are raising their own expectations for themselves. I want to keep them moving forward in the class and their lives. They face hard choices every day about drugs, gangs and relationships. These kids are making the right choices and I hope to continue to help them grow in the class and in their lives. They need a keyboard, mouse and computer chairs to use the monitors and computers provided. We are missing these things because they no longer work.

My Project

I am requesting four computer chairs, 5 basic keyboards and mouses and 5 headphones so that I can use technology in more of my lesson plans using the four computers that I have in my room. We have research relay assignments and we use teamwork but our equipment sometimes breaks down.

Being computer literate will open doors for these kids.

We have to get them ready to function in an ever changing world so they can not only survive but flourish in this ever changing world.
