I am a “D teacher.” Wait, that doesn’t sound right! Let me try again. What I mean is I am a Determined, Dedicated, and Driven educator who will do what it takes to help students succeed. This year I have been putting my efforts towards helping my 5th grade students become computer savvy. To do this, I have selected a Hewlett Packard notebook computer that will help students build the important computer skills they will need to succeed inside and outside of school. Getting students hooked and engaged in school is a battle that every classroom teacher faces. Based on past experiences, I know that technology is one tool that always gets students engaged in learning. This is one of the reasons that I am working hard to fund a HP notebook computer for my students to use. They will be taught how to use the laptop to conduct Internet research, use educational websites, and create written documents and multimedia presentations. Using the computer for these tasks will save student time, while increasing productivity and learning. In this ever-increasing technological world, it is important that students know how to use computers. The daily use of the laptops will help prepare my students for middle school, high school and for many, college. I plan to use the requested notebook computer in my 5th grade classroom, wherever my teaching career leads me. Thank you for your consideration and desire to make a difference in the lives of students. Through your generosity, deserving students will have the opportunity to have daily access to a HP notebook computer. By investing in these students, you are investing in the future of America!
