Mrs. T. from Bronx NY is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need ink cartridges and paper for our copier and printer.
The students from my school live in one of the poorest Congressional Districts in the country. Many of our students are English language learners who live day-to-day and view coming to this public school as a way to escape their home lives. Some don't even have homes to go to! We try our best to provide students with access to after school programs and technology, but with major budget cuts, we can no longer afford to fund student-centered projects. It has become increasingly difficult to offer services to our English Language Learners as well as our large population of students with Special Needs.
Through the generous donors of DonorsChoose.org, my students have received a printer, copier and paper. Unfortunately, because we have been doing so many portfolios, writing personal essays, creating resumes, printing out our newspaper and more, we are in desperate need of printer supplies.
We have a huge population of immigrant students as well and I want them to be exposed to as much as possible so that they don't fall behind in their future educational endeavors.
They take public transportation, buses and trains, to and from one of the most dangerous corners in this city. Most of them have limited or no access to computers and the Internet outside of our school. Some of them share a one bedroom apartment with mom, dad, grandma, and three siblings. Their home lives are crowded and now so are their classrooms. Our public school bends over backwards to help our students as much as possible, but budget cuts have severely decimated funding and I just can't afford to give them everything they need.
My students are reminded on a daily basis how little most of the nation cares about them.
Budget cuts, political digs, and a lack of adequate facilities and materials teach them at an early age to toughen up and not care. A donation of something as special as these devices would mean so much to them. Not only would they assist them in classroom activities, they would also help them to realize that people really do care about their education.
