I am a Science Teacher at Sugar Grove Elementary School in Houston, Texas.I work at a very low economically school with 65 Katrina children. My school is located in a very low income neighborhood, where there is limited parental involvement. But we still need to service these students, we have limited funds from our building and no funds from a non existing PTO. I would like a laptop computer.
Currently, we do not have any computers in my Science room. I would like to have one computer center for my students. The computer will be used to project findings on the board so that every child could benefit. We would also use it for a listening center.
In addition to researching for projects and writing up project presentations, my kids need more time on the computer to improve their writing skills. Most do not have computers at home. My students need to be able to learn how to present slide shows and to complete activities using technology and the internet. Technology allows teachers to bring real life data, images and information to all students and allow students to organize and display their knowledge.
Many of my kids are considered to be “at-risk for school failure.?Many come to us on transfers from other school because of overcrowding. These computer will help our "at risk" student and all of our students to realize learning is fun when using a computer. This computer will serve over 400 students.
