Microsoft Laptop for Special Needs Learners

My Students

My high school students are part of a restricted 12:1:1 setting due to their severe social/emotional disabilities and academic delays. All of my students live in Brooklyn, NY with low income families, in shelters, or with foster families. My students' home lives are extremely difficult; they display very little trust toward their peers and adults. The abuse and neglect that these children have faced in their lifetime is something no child, or human being, should be exposed to. These teens come to school because it is where they feel "at home." Our school is a warm environment that welcomes all students, regardless of disability.

My Project

Having a Microsoft Laptop will benefit my students in completing assignments and give them higher motivation to stay engaged in learning while aiding their opportunity to succeed. My students' success at the high school level is imperative, especially for those who plan on furthering their education and obtaining jobs. Donations toward this project will improve my classroom because this project will change the way my students feel about participating and completing assignments. A lot of times, my students are frustrated and insecure about their ability to complete tasks. Having a new, working computer in my classroom will change my students' lives for the better because it will enhance their learning through a positive and engaging learning experience.
