My Students

Within the NYC Public school system is District 75. District 75 houses the highest needs special needs students and oftentimes, these students also fall into the highest needs economically disadvantaged category. Over 90% of my students fall into this category. We are a 12-month program, where students attend year-round to receive services.

My students are part of the largest school district in the country (the NYC DOE) and fall into the highest needs category.

For years, I have poured my own money into my classroom, but it is not enough! I have reached out to local community members and collected used and refurbished computers, but they do not meet the requirements to run modern software.

I teach grades K-8 and a total of 9 classes, a daily lunch club and a weekly positive behavior intervention club as a reward for students. All students would have access to these resources!

That is why today, I am reaching out for global support to help our highest needs students get an equal chance to succeed! We truly need your assistance to level the playing field. Many students come from homes that do not have internet access or technology, further increasing the achievement gap.

My Project

A year ago, 32 RCA Voyager Pro tablets were donated to my classroom by a not-for-profit. The problem is, they did not come with cases.

In the past year, we are down to 26 tablets from accidental falls!

At roughly $10 a case, it is completely reasonable to buy a few cases. But, funding a class set would cost hundreds of dollars. This is where we ran into trouble.

I am able to load the tablets with e-books and literacy apps to help teach illiterate and severely below-grade-level students to read.

Your help will go beyond serving the needs of my students. It will be a gift that keeps on giving, as another 100+ students enter my classes each year. We very much need cases to ensure the tablets are around for years to come!
