Mrs. Hawkins from Plant City FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Helping Hawkins’ Heroes

Help me give my students a full class set of Amazon Tablets and I will be purchasing charging stations so they are able to be engaged in learning History and Language Arts using technology.

My Students

I like to give the students the opportunity to work where they feel most comfortable. I have provided many different seating options they are able to access daily. Our classroom is a safe zone, where we all respect each other and do our best. Each student has a different family background and face many financial, emotional and family challenges. They have a different way or style of learning so I like to allow the freedom to do what works best for each student. We share a caring and thriving environment that I want to enrich even more! The students need to have technology in their hands daily to be able to practice before they are required to use it later in life. With the way the world is going technology is a must to be prepared for life. This would give them time to be comfortable using technology with help and use it to expand their minds, vocabulary, and grow as a student.

My Project

My students face large challenges economically, but they have heart and determination. We are a Title One school that serves migrant farm workers and other low-income areas. Many of my students start the day in the field before school or watch younger siblings while their parents are in the field so technology is not an option for many of our students. Very few students have technology or computers available at home. If I am able to provide a tablet for each student during class, they will be able to reach a higher potential in their education. By providing the tablets daily, the students will have one less obstacle to overcome in their young lives to be successful. They will be able to focus more on learning. Every little bit helps.
