My Students

I am teaching Computer Science for K-8th grade students who attend a low-income urban school in Chicago. Our school is a great school to be at because the children are hard workers, innovative, and problem solvers. The children love to learn and code.

They have developed a love for computer science through hands-on coding activities.

Our school is a Title I school and the students come with various backgrounds and stories. My school is made up of almost eight hundred students who are ready to learn but do not have the full resources outside of school. We do the best that we can to serve all students' needs.

My Project

PES was conducting a large Spring fundraiser this year to raise money to buy much-needed technology and computers. Sadly, with the shelter-in-place ordinance, our opportunity to raise funds through local area businesses has come to a halt. We are now shifting our focus to online fundraising and appealing to parents, community members and local businesses to contribute what they can to ensure all of our students have access to technology and 21st-century learning.

By donating today, you will help my students have the most up to date computer lab in our school.

Technology is their future. It is a must in today's classrooms and a valuable resource in today's society for it is rapidly growing.
