I teach a yearbook class for eager students at a high-needs, inner-city school. My students come from diverse backgrounds, but each share in the struggles of coming from a low-income neighborhood. They are a great group of kids, but they lack many of the resources most schools take for granted.

Our school focuses around the dream of getting every student into college upon graduation. My English class has a number of students voicing an interest in journalism, graphic design, photography, and marketing. It has been successful, but we have struggled with not having access to the technology crucial to making a top quality product. Our school is new, and resources are limited. Computers are reserved for the science and math classes, and are seldom available for my students to work on.

Two portable computers will greatly improve my students ability to expand their knowledge of technology, both by providing access to the Internet for research and by giving them the means to express themselves through writing more effectively. What is more, the computers will help aide the students in acquiring skills necessary to be successful both in college and in their careers. Perhaps most importantly, the computers will improve my students spirits knowing that what they value is valued by others and that their dreams deserve the tools to make those dreams come true.

Help my kids follow their career dreams. By providing them this donation you will be assisting me in empowering these kids in ways you can't begin to imagine. Help me to make a positive impact on their school life, and on their future.

Mr. Lord Johnson
Grades 9-12
Nearly all students from low‑income households
