New Classroom Tools for Hoover Students Thanks to a Bay Area Non-Profit
Students at Hoover Community School in the K-2 Special Day Class have been selected by a Bay Area non-profit organization to receive a generous donation of tech tools for each child and their teacher.
Jacklyn Moore’s class of 10 students will each get a mini iPad and protective case, along with classroom devices such as a color printer and more, to support their learning projects and integration of technology in the classroom.
The gift comes from Autism: Yesterday and Today, a 501c3 non-profit started by parents of a special needs student, which raises funds to purchase computers and other technological devices for special needs public school classrooms.
The foundation’s goal is to work each year in a different city and to provide this technology to one special education class.
In years past, Autism: Yesterday and Today has donated iPads and other tech to schools in Fremont, Hayward, San Jose, Oakland and San Francisco. This year they looked to Redwood City for their selection process!
Moore, or Miss Jackie as her students affectionately call her, has been teaching at Hoover Community School for nearly 10 years as the Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade Special Day Class teacher.
With her incredible passion for helping children, coupled with a Masters Degree in Special Education completed in 2009 and a continued commitment to furthering her own education, Moore will undoubtedly put this magnificent donation to great use.
