My Students

My students are Sixth graders in a multicultural urban community. We have an extremely limited budget with minimal support from our local government to fund basic supplies.

These students love their neighborhood school because it creates a sense of community.

This is especially important because many of the students come from broken homes. They are excited to learn but often times do not have access to the same materials that other students have from surrounding districts which leaves them at a disadvantage.

My Project

We are requesting a laptop. The purpose of this laptop is to provide enrichment. A new laptop will allow my students access to games and activities that focus on science, technology, engineering and math that we use during character and career (STEM) development. This will allow students to have access to a wealth of information and resources during our sessions.

A new laptop will provided countless resources for enhancing education and making learning more fun and effective to them.

A new laptop would provide instant access to information which will help to supplement my students' learning. A laptop will ultimately help prepare my students for the future, where new technology is developing everyday.
