My Students

The students at my school have multiple challenges due to their socioeconomic status. Roughly 73% of them are at the poverty level and come to school with a handful of issues that make the most basic learning objectives challenging.

My goal is to provide them with the most cutting edge technology that is available today so that they can learn in an interactive classroom environment.

Please help me attain this goal and I will make sure and help create better citizens and educated young adults!

My Project

These are the most up to date calculators available for use on both the AP Calculus and AP Statistics exams. These calculators will be used daily in class and will enhance the learning through colorful graphs and more computing ability than previous versions.

Now that all of my students have access to a Chromebook, these calculators can be plugged directly into their device for easy charging - saving those kids who can not afford the cost of replacement batteries.

Thank you for helping to level the playing field and provide this technology to students and families who can not provide for themselves. You are helping to make a difference in my classroom!
