We Want HP Technology Please!

My students need a HP mini computer in our classroom in order to help them improve their math and reading levels.

My Students

Do you remember when you learned how to read or when you learned how to add numbers? My students are struggling with reading and math skills. An HP computer in our classroom will make math and literacy concepts come alive for my students.

I teach second grade at a public school in an impoverished area in Philadelphia.

I have a class of students who love to learn. They are very sweet and everyone who meets them falls in love with them. They are constantly requesting to play math and literacy games on a HP computer. It would be my dream to make their dream come true.

My Project

I will be able to give my students HP computer time! They can learn to do research, type, and use interactive computer games and programs to enhance their educational experience. Computer skills are essential in today's society. We are moving more and more into a technology based way of life everyday. I need an HP computer to help my students to become more competent in math and literacy skills.

My students deserve the best educational opportunities I can offer them.

I want them to be able to achieve to their highest potential. Nothing should hold them back! The HP computer will open new worlds to my students! They can explore and learn about the entire world.
