My Second Graders Still Need New Technology.

My students need a MacBook Pro to help us improve our math and reading skills.

My Students

Do you remember when you learned how to read and write? My students are struggling with math and reading skills. A MacBook Pro computer in our classroom will help to make math and literacy concepts come alive.

I currently teach second grade at a public school in an impoverished area in Philadelphia.

I have a class of students who love to learn. They are very sweet and everyone who meets them falls in love with them. They are constantly requesting to play math and literacy games on the computer. It would be my dream to make their dream come true.

My Project

I want to be able to provide my students with computer time in our classroom. I want my students to be computer savvy as well as proficient in math and literacy skills. Our school-based math and literacy program has many games that will further improve their reading and math levels.

My students deserve the best educational opportunities that I can give offer them.

I want them to be able to achieve to their highest potential. Nothing should hold them back. This new computer will help them be the best that the can be.
