Hooray! This project is fully funded
I work at a special education school, serving emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, and other special education classified students. Our students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds; over 95% of the student body is eligible for free lunch and over 90% receive public assistance.
I have a self-contained classroom, which serves students with specialized learning needs.
During classroom lessons, my students learn the basics of Math, English, Science, and Social Studies. They only venture out of my classroom for their elective courses, so the majority of their studies are done in my room alone.
We need a laptop computer for our classroom. I am teaching my students to become more comfortable with technology in the classroom because this will help them prepare for college and the world of work. Most jobs require decent computer skills, and I want to infuse my lessons with computers. My students will be able to type their assignments, conduct internet research, prepare presentations, and even use computers for their free time.
Despite my students' various emotional, environmental, and educational challenges, many of my students plan to attend college or trade school when they graduate.
They realize they need to be prepared for our technology-driven society, and are eager to utilize as much equipment as possible. Thank you for considering our classroom!
