Spanish Scholars Need Basic Supplies

My students need a printer, Laserjet cartridge and 15 Spanish & English dictionaries to help them succeed at becoming bilingual scholars.

My Students

In the Bay Area speaking Spanish is a pathway to higher education and job opportunities. Yet how can students learn Spanish if their Spanish classroom lacks basic supplies such as a printer and dictionaries?

My students come from the low-income cities of Richmond, San Pablo and El Sobrante.

They are primarily African American and Latino. Nearly half are children of recent immigrants to the United States. They are motivated and engaged, inspired to be the first in their family to attend college and make positive change in their community.

My Project

This year, due to massive budget cuts in our district, my classroom no longer has provided me with a printer and toner. This greatly hinders my ability to teach as I can no longer make handouts and practice worksheets for my students. Additionally, we lack the books that empower students to gain proficiency. With a set of Spanish/English dictionaries we would be able to read and discuss engaging literature together. This would not only increase their love for Spanish but enhance their literary analysis and critical thinking skills. This will allow them to excel in their other classes and be better prepared for college.

My low income students deserve the same opportunity to learn Spanish as students from wealthy schools.

By providing my classroom with a printer and dictionaries, I can teach my students far more efficiently and effectively, allowing them to become bilingual scholars inspired to help Spanish speakers in their community.
