The Description

With these funds, we will purchase enough computers for all of my English language learning students. Within the ESL program, we have a variety of programs to help our students learn the English language. I have students who speak Spanish, German, Tigrinya, Swahili, Chinese, and Arabic. For that reason, it is vital that we utilize the amazing programs to help the transition to another country easier. However, this is difficult when there is not enough technology in the classroom. Currently, we have to rotate on the computers since we have 7 computers but at least 15 students per classroom. The students seem to get the most out of their time on the computers. It is self paced, so the students feel more comfortable going at their own pace. With the monies raised, I will purchase as many computers as possible to help all students become more fluent English students. I am looking to purchase 2 to 3 computers with the funds raised. I would purchase Dell laptops that cost approximately $500 each. Please click on the link to view additional details about each laptop:


Thanks for any donations and consideration!

Back Up Plan

we will purchase at least one computer or iPad. If I do not have enough for that, I will use the monies to purchase dictionaries in Swahili and Tigrinya. We currently have five Swahili speaking students and two Tigrinya speaking students. For that reason, we need resources that these students are able to utilize. Something in their language is of the utmost importance so that the transferring of knowledge is still taking place.
