My Students

My student range from 11 years old to about 19 years old, so with that you can see that we are very diverse in age but also in cultures. They are predominately Latino and African American, and they attend a school that is placed in one of the poorest congressional districts in the nation. Despite everything my students believe in success and are not quitters.

No task is too small to not chase perfection and excellence.

Nothing seems to stop my students, and with the help of everyone, I hope to facilitate this journey they all are going through to better prepare them for life after high school.

My Project

Technology is changing really fast and as an educator, I always want to keep up with it by introducing students to the latest upgrade. This exposes them to the speed and power that the real world is working with. This project is for a desktop computer that will introduce students to many programs that will help with any task that they are dealing with.

The technology keeps moving forward, which makes it easier for the artists to tell their stories and paint the pictures they want.

The CyberPowerPC is packed with enough memory to explore powerful programs including 3d and video editing, it holds 16gb of memory. The hard drive is large enough to save any important document they are working on and need for future reference, it is at 2TB of space. Many students have also shown interest in coding and with the help of this computer, we will be able to show them how coding is possible. The main focus of this project is to help all students, allow them access to today's latest technology to avoid having them fall behind.
