Spectacular Students Need Technology: This is Our Future!

My students need this document camera so that academic material is easier to teach, to access, and to learn.

My Students

Do you remember the days of black chalkboards and chalk? Luckily those days are gone, yet technology is advancing at a pace that schools with limited budgets cannot sustain. All students deserve the best resources for learning and we will work to attain them!

I am teaching bright and eager second graders this year!

They have such a thirst for knowledge and as their teacher, it is my responsibility to challenge them to learn. My school is a language arts and social justice magnet school. The students come from various economic and ethnic backgrounds. Most students qualify for free or reduced lunches and due to limited funding, we have not upgraded the technological means of educating our youth. My school tries to offer the best to our kids who come from economically disadvantaged families, with the little resources that we have. The majority of our students are African American, while the second largest group is Latino. Our school and our families can't completely support the resources we need to be more effective educators and to bolster student achievement and success.

My Project

My students deserve the best! Socioeconomic levels or limited state and district funding should not determine the resources used in the classroom in an ideal world. Yet, unfortunately they do, and here is where you can make a difference. Your contribution to the donation of this document camera to my class would be amazing! It would undoubtedly be used on a daily basis. As a teacher, I will be able to project any document or book onto a screen, so that all students can view it. Students will all have equal access to the materials used and will learn how to use more modern technology, on a daily basis. By helping to provide the new document camera in the classroom, you will have helped level the playing field for my students. They will no longer be hindered by budgets and bureaucracy but will be able to more effectively access the curriculum and in turn become competitive amongst all of their peers. Thank you!

Attaining this document reader is so important because currently we only have one per 3-4 teachers.

This means that we are forced to create a way to "share" this essential tool. This is not effective, nor does it benefit the teachers or the students. Please consider helping me and my students make the ever-challenging task of teaching and learning a little easier.
