Sure, your resources are limited, but your possibilities don't have to be. I'll show you innovative ways to squeeze more out of your school's computers using inexpensive (often free) software and clever techniques.
Kids are enthusiastic about technology. You'll find it's easier to reach them by mixing technology into the curriculum. Better engage them and watch them succeed.

My wife was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis before she and I met. She's been living with the disease for over seven years now. Although she's doing well, MS has put her life and the range of experiences available to her in a box. At the moment, the box is pretty large, but it's limiting nonetheless.
I chose to support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in hopes they will be able to continue to make the lives of my wife and other sufferers as full and unimpeded as possible. Perhaps someday, the disease can be eradicated so that victims can come out of their boxes and do all the things they couldn't before.
