I teach 4th grade at maybe one of the greatest educational institutions of elementary learning in all of California. My program includes math, language arts, social studies, science, PE, art, music, and character building. There are approximately 600 students in grades K-5. We enjoy a tremendous amount of support from the community as well as our district.

Imagine the horror of living in a world where you have access to endless amounts of information at your fingertips everywhere in your life except at school? Shouldn't our children's educational environment be equipped with the technology necessary to deliver the full scope of our curriculum?

An LCD projector solves our problem. It will enable us to utilize all the digital resources available as well as the innumerable resources available on the internet. My students will be able to experience our curriculum from multiple perspectives, interactively, and with video, from other educators besides myself.

An LCD projector would enable me to open my students up to a world of educational delights most educators dare not dream of. With your help, I can realize my dream of giving my students a more complete education as well as developing new methods of delivering curriculum that will benefit children for years to come.
