My Students

My students are a great group of teenagers who are eager to learn about the subjects we teach. They are great at helping each other out, and I am inspired by seeing them overcome obstacles to their learning on a daily basis.

Despite having a variety of disabilities and coming from impoverished backgrounds, they work very hard every day to improve their social and academic skills.

I want to work through DonorsChoose.org to improve the learning environment in my class and provide my students with more options on how to access the core subjects that I teach.

I work with three wonderful teaching assistants, and we have already created a great environment in which our kids feel welcome and safe. We just need some assistance to make it even better!

My Project

Our students use desktop computers to work on their individual math and reading objectives every day. They also use the computers to research and create projects for science and social studies. We've found that it is best to have these computers in study carrels so that students are able to maintain their focus on their work and not get distracted by what other students are doing. We have one set of study carrels that are very sturdy, but our other set did not survive when we moved schools because they were poorly made. We want to get some sturdy carrels so that we have one carrel for each of our five desktop computers.
