My Students

The challenge that is facing my students is that our technology in the classroom and around the school is very outdated. Most of the computers do not work. My students are hungry to obtain new and better technology, please help them!

My students are the most amazing kids any teacher could ask for!

My students are always looking to better themselves academically. This requires more then having them use textbooks. They are motivated by technology and very computer savvy. The problem we have in our school is that there is not enough technology to go around. They need more technology to help them with their work which will help them in their future in college and in the work force. Their school is a great school, one thing that is lacking is technology. We need technology to help us with our work.

My Project

Our students are more then just kids in a classroom. They are ready to change lives! This technology will help the students progress towards a more productive future in college and the work force. Technology in the classroom would change the lives of these students from the first day, for the next four years of high school, and beyond. We will be able to do more activities, such as hands-on and real time activities. These two tablets will help many students be able to work harder and faster with the information they are given. Also the students will be able to grasp technology better. We are in the age of technology. The students need to be able to obtain the knowledge of technology, and with the lack of it in our school this would help many students learn about technology!

Donations to this request will make a difference by providing new technology to great students who have a passion to learn.

With this technology they will be able to do more research and learn more information that is not provided in the textbooks. Any donor would be proud to support this request.
