THE STORY:

I teach 11th grade biology at Southern High School in Louisville, KY. Southern High School is a Title 1 school where 100% of the students receive free or reduced lunch. Each day, I teach 110 students of diverse racial and socioeconomic backgrounds, making it difficult to meet all of their needs at once. For many of my students, school has always been an environment where they experience little success. Although I teach 11th graders, many are not performing at their appropriate grade level, due to challenges both in and out of school. This manifests itself in a significant loss of motivation. Despite this obstacle, I have had the rewarding experience of seeing students get excited about biology. I’ve found that the most engaging lessons almost always involve technology, which allows students to learn through hands-on, interactive videos and simulations. Student comprehension of conceptual biology is vastly improved with the aid of computer simulations. Technology also greatly supports the learning of my ESL (English as a Second Language) students in particular, allowing them to quickly look up difficult words or translate text passages. Unfortunately, due to the limited funding available in my school, I do not have regular access to technology. I have decided to start this fundraiser to buy 15 tablets that pairs of students can share during my class. The money that is donated will go towards the following products: 15 Lenovo IdeaTab A8-50 8-Inch 16 GB Tablets ($112.50 each), 15 Lenovo Idea Tab A8-50 8 Inch Case Cover ($9.99 each), 50 Qty - Tok Tok Designs® Bulk Stereo Earphone ($46.89), 15 Belkin Speaker and Headphone Splitter ($2.99 each), 3 Anker PowerPort 5 Multiport USB charger ($19.99 each), and a locking storage chest for tablets & materials to build a charging station (~$60). Total cost: $2,050. Any additional funding will go towards buying more Lenovo IdeaTab A8-50 Tablets in order to reduce the number of students working with each tablet.
