My Students

Fellow passionate people, are you looking for a way to invest in our future, look no further. Who is Mr. E's class, you ask? They are creative achievers, students with unique world views that have already been molded by a myriad of life experiences. They have potential to become but often lack the means to accomplish this on their own. And, most inconveniently, they are terribly obsessed with living life to the fullest.

It is contributions like yours that will help our students truly become all they can by providing all the resources they need.

Thank you for taking the time to consider our class for your donation; every bit makes a difference!

My Project

When you type numbers into an Excel box and other numbers change, you probably don't think about it. I know I don't. It's normal, right? Well, not in my class. We use paper week after week to demonstrate processes that, in 2019, are automated.

I'm concerned that a lack of practice using business applications as simple as Microsoft Excel will result in a deficit of independent living skills.

The ability to create an electronic document and manipulate it in order to budget money is an independent living skill. I know Excel does much more than budgeting, but we have to start somewhere!

Please consider donating to my classroom and providing my students access to technology that will foster financial literacy.
