My Students

My students are an inquisitive assortment of learner's from St. Matthews SC. They have a thirst for knowledge that inspires me to wake up in the morning. I am a first year Keyboarding/IBA Teacher and I am needing basic classroom resources to enhance their learning experience.

They enjoy using technology and I am surprised daily about how quickly they pick up on new concepts.

They have already demonstrated the ability and the curiosity, I just need basic resources to enhance there learning.

My Project

I am requesting your support to help purchase my students some earbuds and give our mouses a house/pad. I am in need of ear buds and mouse pads. These items will greatly enhance my students learning, simply because the ones we currently are utilizing are defective. Our current mouse pads are either defective or missing. Better mouse pads will help improve my students efficiency and decrease their frustration working with faulty equipment. Too many times students are defeated before they get started. With better equipment I believe it will boost their confidence and increase their participation and motivation. They report to class each day with a great attitude and an enthusiasm to match. I honestly believe that better equipment to support and enhance learning will help prepare them to successfully empower, compete and succeed in the learning environment. Which will contribute to them becoming world class citizens.
