My Students

My students live in a city that has been ranked the number one most dangerous city in the country. We have a high level of poverty, and the problems in the community are felt in our schools.

Many of our students do not have strong parental support and guidance.

We have students that go to school full-time and work several part-time jobs to help sustain the livelihood of their families. While the students have an assortment of obstacles they face every day, I also say that they are hard-working and intelligent individuals. It is my job to ensure that when they graduate, my students are prepared to be functioning citizens in society.

As a teacher in a Title I school district, I observe that many of my students lack the basic necessities for school. I want my students to be successful in everything that they do.

My Project

Our students are working on STEM projects and in order for them to complete the STEM Projects, students need a reliable laptop to help them research the topics and resource so that they can start their project. Many of my students who have IEP need visuals to better understand math concepts. I know that this laptop will be a great resource for my students. Because of our school budget constraints, not every student has access to computers. Even if the students have computers, some students have no internet access at home. I will provide this computer to my students during their lunch period, study hall, or after school so they could complete projects and assignments.
