Teach For America alum Samantha Corvino (Chicago-Northwest Indiana ’10) believes technology will serve as a gateway to future success for her students at Pritzker College Prep in Chicago. But first they need access to it.
“Without technology, most students don’t make it through the four years to get their college degree,” Ms. Corvino says. “It’s surprising how many students struggle in college due to lack of technology resources.”
One important resource Ms. Corvino would like her students to have is a flash drive so they can store their work in a safe, secure place. But more importantly, flash drives will allow them to transfer their work from one computer to another in a quick and efficient way.
To provide this technology to her class, Ms. Corvino has turned to DonorsChoose.org to raise funds to purchase flash drives for her students to store and transfer data and serve as a key tool to their success in high school and beyond.
“Without being able to transfer information, learning is often lost,” she says.
Please consider supporting Ms. Corvino’s project today—and thank you, as always for supporting teachers and the kids they serve.
