Technology is driving education in school and my students deserve to have the best technology at their fingertips when they come to school. Our students need to be able to compete with other cultures and what better way than to make sure that they are educationally savvy in all aspects.

Although, they may come from backgrounds that are not the most promising, they have a fire inside of them to be achievers and productive citizens of their communities. They may attend a school that has been deemed a school of high poverty, but their brains are not brains of poverty and they deserve the best of education and technology.
