I teach a Gifted & Talented program for 5th graders from all over the city of Lynn, Massachusetts. The students come from a very diverse population in a city with a high percentage of families falling below the poverty line. English is a second language for many of Lynn's students.
This program has no budget. Everything is funded through fundraising.

We are in desperate need of all kinds of technology..... and would love to have a smart board, computers with DVD and CD drives, digital photo equipment, microscopes and other science equipment, etc.
We have built the basic robot through Lego First - and need funding to
continue on to the regional competition.
We also would like funds to sponsor special artist programs, and field trips
to enrich our standards based curriculum.
