I am teaching sixth graders at Tchenfuncte Middle School in Mandeville, Louisiana. The hurricanes hurt many of my students this year. We were unable to attend school for approximately 1 month. Some students returned and others did not. Some returned with nothing-no supplies and no help at home. With so much of their world today being technology rich, I try very hard to provide my students with computer access. Recently the school provided each teacher with a DELL and I already had an iMac. The class shares a printer with 8 other classes. I would appreciate your help with a new computer system for our class. This would give me another way in which to enrich the lives of my students. They enjoy learning and sharing in the computer lab, but we only are allowed once a week visits. This once a week visit makes in very difficult to work on power points, research, time-lines, hyper-studio, and etc. Thank you for considering this sponsorship. This class will make you proud.
