I teach sixth grade English and Social Studies in Granada Hills. While the school's location is in a nice part of town, we serve many students from impoverished neighborhoods that travel as much a 30 miles to access a safer school community. However, because of our location we receive a minuscule amount of funding for technology. I teach both gifted and English Language Learners and both groups would benefit from consistent use and access to technology. I would like to put four new computers in my room so that my students may do research during class discussions and projects without leaving the room. It is my dream to someday have a paperless classroom where students can access and complete assignments on-line, making use of today's technology to prepare for tomorrow's work force. One of my students had never even used a computer before coming to my class this year, which both shocked and saddened me. Since the wide-spread use of computers has made research and word processing easy, it is only natural that students should acquire a vast knowledge of this field. Preparing them for tomorrow's work force can only make them a more valuable employee with exceptional experience in technology.
