I am a special education middle school teacher. Our school is in a low socioeconomic area with a wonderfully diverse population of students. I teach both math and English language arts 6th - 8th grade. Some of our students are unable to buy simple school supplies such as pencils, notebooks and paper, therefore I have always supplied this out of my own pocket. At one time our school had the most recent technology but we were unable to keep up with the ever changing up dates and program changes. My hope is for our students to be able to learn without stress, learn with excitement and learn with the most up-to-date technologies so that they can transition into the real world as productive educated citizens.

“We are ALL special.””

What will funds be used for

I teach Special Education in a low socio-economic area. Most of my students can not afford simple things like pencils, notebooks and paper, so I typically buy this out of pocket. This funding will help with purchasing technology for my classroom, subscriptions to education based internet programs for my students, along with everyday school supplies.
