No More Green Dusty Boards Please!

My students need to be able to see additional information that is charted on the board during discussion & the green board does not make that possible.

My Students

Do you remember snickering behind your teacher's back at the white line going across her black pants? Well, now that I have your attention; that's not why I am requesting white boards in my room. My students struggle to see what we chart from rich class discussions and only you can help!

Our school is located in the South side of Jamaica, Queens.

the area has a bad reputation, but the students inside are truly a diamond in the rough. They begin in middle school working towards goal setting for college and they are blessed with the opportunity to graduate high school with 60 college credits. We have high standards and they are working diligently to meet those standards.

My Project

We are a newer small school and unfortunately we do not have a lot of technology in the classroom. We have some working projectors and just this year, after the students did a walk-a-thon to raise money, we were able to get a computer lab in the school. The students are dedicated to their education and are diligently preparing themselves at a young age to be college ready. Having white boards in the room will help us upgrade the classroom and make it easier for them to see what we chart during discussions. Also, with the help of the student fundraising, we were able to get some interactive technology, but we are in need of white boards to project the technology clearly. In addition, because we have limited space teachers have to share rooms and move period to period. Having white boards makes it more efficient for teachers to add and remove notes from the boards without the hassle of a wet sponge.

This new equipment will not only help my students to be able to see more clearly what is charted, but they will also know that individuals, whom they've never met, are taking an interest in their education and their future, which in turn will validate their efforts.
