Ms. Grewe from Port Huron MI is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students Amazon Fire tablets that will allow them to succeed in a college setting.
My seniors are an amazing group of people who are reaching for the stars. Our community is diverse and low-income. Very few of my student's parents have attended college, and many see college as a waste of time and money. I push my students to see college as an opportunity to change their lives.
By 2020 70% of jobs in the state of Michigan will require a postsecondary degree.
My students will be left behind if myself and the other staff members cannot push them to attend college after high school. Breaking the cycle of poverty is hard, but a college degree offers a chance they may have never gotten before.
Over half of my senior class is considered free and reduced lunch, and many do not have technology at home that they can keep once they graduate high school. Each student is provided with a school-issued Chromebook, but once they graduate these Chromebooks are returned to the school. To help further their education I am asking for a donation of Fire Tablets.
To succeed in college students must have technology.
Every day our world is using technology more and more, from sending emails, to typing up essays and reports. Without a device that can connect to the internet students are at a distinct disadvantage. College is already hard, imagine how much harder it would be trying to make it to the library, find an open computer, and get your work done as fast as possible. Having an Amazon Fire Tablet allows my students to connect anywhere and complete their college coursework on their schedule.
