I am an elementary teacher in the Houston Independent School district at a school that is located in an at risk students low-income area. I have a great group of 21 kids that includes Katrina evacuee students that are striving to do their best in all areas. It is very difficult to do this with limited resources available to us. I have found out that technology is the best way to not only motivate the students but also prepare them for the future. To aid my teaching I need a computer so that innovative teaching can occur through technology. As a result, for the vast majority of my students, having access to voice or image recording technology is rare. An elementary teacher in an under funded school, creativity is a key part of my job. Being creative and enhancing my students learning experience is critical to foster a love for learning. One way I have been able to reach the captivating mind of a 6 year old is through technology and the Internet. Although we have a few computers, it is not sufficient enough to allow my overcrowded class significant time on the computers and Internet. My students would truly benefit from a computer in order to fully experience and explore what the Internet and technology has to offer. In a world where technology is essential, I feel that a notebook would allow me the ability to expose my students, at a young age, to the many facets of technology by utilizing the Internet, Power Point presentations and different types of software. Since the classroom is usually the only place my students have access to a computer and the Internet I feel that providing lessons with up to date technology will help decrease the technological gap that exists between inner city and suburban schools. Thank you in advance for helping my students achieve their goals.
