My Students

My students are passionate, talented, funny, and persevering. They have to be in order to survive in one of the worst neighborhoods in the South Bronx. Many come from broken homes, foster care, group homes, and family shelters for the homeless or abused. Despite these circumstances, my kids are eager to come to school and find a path out of their situations with the power of education. I have never met a stronger group of young men and women in my 20+years of teaching.

These students are so disadvantaged that many of them don't have access to the simplest supplies at home.

I want them to be exposed to as much as possible, so they don't fall behind in their future educational endeavors. They could have a very bleak outlook on what life has to offer them, but the amazing thing is, they don't. I strive every day to be a positive role model for them and reinforce the idea they can make a difference in their own lives with the power of education.

My Project

Sooooo....this Linux teacher is not thrilled about posting this project, but my students are what matters, right? Siiiigh.....we need an Apple iMac for our Maker Space because so many programs (especially design programs) are best used interacted with on an Apple.

While open source is always best, sometimes careers require bowing to the gods of Apple.

I try to provide my students with all of the cutting edge technology that they need but don't have access to. Many of my students are interested in photography and digital design and Apple is the tool of choice for those professions. By providing them with an iMac and special keyboard, we can help give them the leverage they need to be competitive with others who may have the tools my students don't.
