My Students

We are a Title I school and 95% of the students qualify for free/reduced meals. We have a student population of 1,200 students, which consists of 80% African Americans, 10% Whites, and approximately 10% of the population is from other countries. Our school is a career-orientated school. We do our best to include all of our students no matter where they are from or what their skill levels are. Being a special education teacher, I assist those students who have special needs to be successful in what career options they choose. I have approximately 15 students that I teach American Literature and Composition. These students have a wide range of learning disabilities, from learning disabled to autism. These seniors deserve a great send off into the world.

My Project

It is important to have the tools that they need to do this. This will allow them to learn, write more often, type, engage with one another, and practice their computer skills.

These students need laptops and external CD drive to have access to technology in order to perform well in today's ever changing world.

The majority of my students have limited access to technology and the use of tablets. Since we are also located in a high poverty area, most of these students do not have the technology at home to work on research, and complete resumes, and college applications. That's why it's so important to give them the opportunities to use it at school.
