My Students

My students deserve the same opportunities as students in neighboring schools and districts! They have great potential! Many of my students have personal struggles and tragedies to deal with outside of the classroom. I like to call our school a "gem" in a neighborhood that desperately needs it!

Our school is a safe place for students, and the majority of students LOVE being here!

By having access to the right resources, supplies, and technology, we can close the achievement gap by making sure each student has access to resources at his or her own level. Nearly all of my students are from low-income households. This is why I turn to DonorsChoose.org to advocate on their behalf!

My Project

My students need mice to work on their Chromebooks with precision! These mice will allow them to select, drag, plot, graph, and work more efficiently without the stress of using the built-in mousepad. These mice will be especially helpful for my students who need a bit of assistance with technology and fine motor skills.

It seems so basic - a computer mouse - but it will improve overall precision and productivity in the math classroom!

We often use Chromebooks to complete digital activities that reinforce the math concepts that we are learning in class. Students have to click, drag, select, plot, graph during these activities! I'd rather my students be able to focus on the math, versus how to perform these key functions using the built-in pad.
