My Students

Our students have so little and I want to give them so much more. My students come from homes below the poverty line, and I want them to have the chance to experience something that can influence their lives. My classroom has become a better than home-away-from-home for many of my kids.

These students are so disadvantaged that many have no computers at home.

I want them to be exposed to as much as possible so that they don't fall behind in their future educational endeavors. They come from broken homes, are living with an aunt or grandparent instead of Mom and Dad, and many even come from homeless shelters or abused family shelters. They have a very bleak outlook on what life has to offer them and need to know they CAN make a difference in their lives with the power of an education.

My Project

Many of my students are truly enthused about graphic arts and journalism. The Aorus we just received possesses amazing capabilities when it comes to digital and film editing, but we need a few extras to make the job easier. The enhanced gaming mouse and mouse pad are perfect for the fine touch my students need to have while editing and the camera and microphone would be a boon to the film class! The backpack is perfect for carrying all our tools to locations and the headphones will make editing a breeze. With the access to the right tools, many of my more "at-risk for dropping out" students can find something to spark their interest. They've already told me how much they enjoy working on the various projects in my classroom and that sometimes it's the only thing that makes them want to come to school. Give them REAL tools and I know we can make a difference in how they view education and motivate them beyond high school.

Please, for many of my students, school is just another thing they have to do until they're old enough to drop out or finally graduate.

Many don't look towards college or technical school primarily because they don't know what's out there. There are things they haven't even begun to imagine they can do with the editing capabilities of the laptop we have and these last few tools will open those doors. Consider giving my students a real chance in the world.
