My Students

Pescadero is a remote rural community on the San Mateo County Coast. Silicon Valley is only 40 miles East, but the Pescadero students lack exposure and access to modern technology due to the low tax base and lack of tech jobs.

The students come to school excited and eager to learn about new experiences.

They soak up new information like sponges and share it with their family, friends and neighbors. Most lack technology at home so the only exposure they have is at school since there isn't even a public library nearby.

My Project

This computer will be used in the classroom to give the students hands-on time. It will also be used for teaching with modern interactive lessons and content. The class will use the the computer and Internet to research and find answers to student questions.

This computer will help to modernize my classroom and expose the students to exciting digital lessons like other students in the county.

They need this hands-on exposure so they can start to be comfortable with modern technology and online testing.
