Teacher Henry from New York NY is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Headphones Not Headaches!

Help me give my students headphones so they can continue their computer science lessons (some lessons include videos). I want them all to have access to the accessories necessary for computer class!

My Students

My students are all experiencing high school for at least the second time. My school is a transfer high school in an urban city. The students have all experienced previous educational setting that were not beneficial to them. They come to our school with various needs and we use an alternate approach to learning to help them re-engage with our school community values and norms.

My students prefer to be engaged in the learning process.

Having access to computer science courses are a social justice issue. Having experience coding, debugging, and expressing themselves creatively is essential to closing the 'technology' gap. We design curriculum that meets their needs now and in the future.

My Project

I am teaching Computer Science for the first time, and feel compelled to offer the best experience for my students. They deserve it. Studies show that students are less likely to major in Computer Science if they have never had a computer science class in high school.

Headphones are essential to access learning material online.

This project will me to begin building a class set of headphones so that all students can have access.

Computer Science is the future, and I want my students exposed to it. Job security and higher salaries can be found in this profession and they deserve access and accessories.
