Hi fellow-knitters,

Besides knitting, I'm also a teacher for home-bound students (they're too sick to go to school) Some of my students have no technology in their homes at all and I need a 3-G iPad so I can bring technology (teacher web-sites, presentations, etc) to them. Since I don't have the money (nor does my district), I've created a classroom project request at DonorsChoose.org, an award-winning charity.

Visit my page at http://www.donorschoose.org/we-teach/1681160 (http://owa.fortbendisd.com/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://cl.exct.net/?qs=4b8f5289cadc93559bf65cb0a47d6e4cbf815c6afb0caf 31754c01b100f28f3d) to read about what I do and what my students need.

My students and I greatly appreciate your support.

Gina

Thank you for those who are trying to donate. :cheering:Try this link: http://www.donorschoose.org/project/home-bound-should-not-mean-left-out/944894/

Socklady, I hope your child improves soon. Are you receiving homebound services through your school district? My heart goes out to you. It's a difficult thing to have a sick child! :hug:

Quick note: One of my students just had hospice services initiated. SO SAD. He's going downhill very rapidly. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

They have him enrolled in English correspondance to see how he does with me helping him. If he gets through that ok they will put him in more of his subjects

He is in grade 10, and yes do I eer hope they have answers soon. We know he has asthma but whatever else has gothim has been giving him pain, affecting his breathing, his eyes have been affected just to name a few so it would be an answer to a prayer to know what is going on

He's in my prayers!
I can't believe they're only giving him English correspondence, though! Unless he just can't handle anything else. If that's the case, I get it. If not, by law, they have to provide him a complete education!
