Never Before Funded

Please Save Our Library!!!

My students need free access to computers and technology. The computer, printer and. iPad mini will allow for a constant education.

My Students

The library at our school is in constant use. Students use our technology in an effort to maintain the pace of rigorous learning in the 21st century. A typical day in our library sees a constant flow of students reading, writing, discussing and learning. I believe "books are the life of a child."

My students are amazing!

They come from low income housing, but they are eager to learn and incredibly bright. They may not come from the most affluent backgrounds, however, I teach them daily that it is their responsibility to use all of the tools available to them in an effort to create an equal learning environment for future prosperous opportunities. Our school caters to a culturally diverse neighborhood. We open our doors for breakfast and do not close them until well after the after school hours are over. In addition to providing a quality education to our students, we also provide shelter and a home away from home.

My Project

The computer will allow the students to borrow books from our library. Currently, our library is closed due to an outdated, soon-to-be-broken computer. A new computer will be able to support the new library programs and operating system. The printer will allow students who do not have access to Internet to print papers during the school day. The Ipad will allow for constant learning. Students will be able to research while on the go!

These items will benefit the library by providing an influx of technology never before enjoyed by my students.

They will enhance their reading and writing skills, hone mathematical strategies and become well rounded individuals.
