My Students

I am a teacher in a Title 1, low-income/high poverty school neighborhood. The majority of the students who attend my school participate in the free lunch program and are constantly facing several challenges and need all of the resources the can get at school. Many of these students live in shelters. Their parents rely on a single income. It's sad but at such young age my students have experienced many difficult obstacles. Even though my students face a constant challenge, they are always eager to learn and I have noticed that they learn best when when they are fully engaged. What better way than to teach Language Arts and at the same time implement Robotics? I want to show these students that there are wonderful things other than those hard obstacles they must struggle with on a daily basis.

As I mentioned before, many of these students are coming from shelters or are raised in a single parent household.

These obstacles may prevent them from getting ahead or achieving their desired goals.

My Project

I have a computer club "The I'T Troop" lately we are receiving students from Puerto Rico and other islands who have been seriously impacted by Hurricane Maria. Unfortunately, I do not have laptops for all of them to be in my club. Previous Hurricane also damaged some of our computers. Although, I have received a previous donation of laptops, there are not enough for these students. The students are already displaced. Many of them came here alone because they lost everything back home. Please, help me make these students feel as home as much as possible. I can only do this by welcoming them into my computer club. They will learn computer skills that perhaps they may take back home once, they recuperate from this catastrophe.
