Please Help us Project our Work

Please Help us Project our Work My Students: Hello and Welcome! Thank you in advance for choosing my proposal to read. Our school is located in the East Rogers Park area of the City of Chicago. It serves a population of great need, 95% of our students receive free and/or reduced lunch meals. My classroom consists of twenty-two wonderful Second-Graders. These students are in the processes of acquiring a second language, English. As their teacher I can see the excitement, frustration, motivation and desire all rolled into one. As a bilingual teacher, one of my goals is to ease this transition and make it as smooth as possible. I want learning to be fun and pain-free and I think that with your help, I can do that. My Project: The resource I am requesting is an LCD Projector. This tool will not only teach my students new vocabulary, but, also, expose them to 21st Century Technology. My belief is that if we want our children to be up-to-par to other students around the world and in more affluent areas, we must provide the tools necessary to make this happen.
