I teach at an urban high school where most of the students come from low-income families. I teach IB Math to Juniors and Seniors in full-class size capacity. IB stands for International Baccalaureate which offers a rigorous curriculum recognized internationally.
My students are highly motivated and talented yet they need socio-emotional support, college prep and educational materials.
Some of of my students are former English Language learners and some are students with special learning needs. It is an honor to serve my kids each and every day.
Graphing calculators are very important tools in my students' math practice. Due to the cost of these sophisticated calculators, not each student has access to them. My students cannot afford these machines on their own and our district cannot offer one for each student.
My students need graphing calculators to help prepare for the IB mathematics exam.
Students can graph on these calculators which function like small computers. Since students are not allowed to use phones or computers during exams, these calculators will help them navigate the problems, calculate options and display graphs. Providing the right tools and support, I hope to serve my students more efficiently.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
