I work at a special education school, servicing emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, and other special education classified students. Our 175 students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Over 95% of the student body is eligible for free lunch and over 90% receive public assistance. These factors come together and place our children at a huge disadvantage, but we are committed to providing them with a rigorous academic and therapeutic program. The school’s ethnicity is as follows: 60% Hispanic, 30% African American, 8% Caucasian, and 2% Asian. I teach a program called ACE/HOP, which stands for Academic Career Endeavors/Hands-On Program, for special needs students. In this program, my students learn the basics of Math, English, Science, and Social Studies during half the school day. For the latter part of the day, they apply the skills they have learned with hands-on vocational training. My students need a locked file cabinet to store their classwork and homework assignments. They have been developing portfolios of their work, and would like a nice, safe place to store everything. Additionally, they need two 1GB memory strips for their classroom. My students produce a tremendous amount of work, and I teach several different classes....and believe it or not, we are running out of storage space on our computer! These memory strips will expand the available memory on our desktop computer. Despite their various emotional, environmental, and educational challenges, many of my students plan to attend college or trade school when they graduate. They are encouraged to strive for their goals, both big and small. Thank you for considering my deserving students!
