I have an old outdated PowerMac that I only run KidPix on (and it crashes at
least twice a day--hate Macs!) and a brand new Dell Pentium II that our
principal purchased for every classroom through minority funding. The only
reason I have one in my classroom is because I wrote a grant for some

I will be receiving 3-D suite from MetaCreations (Good Price on Software
Package!), Kai's Power Show and PageMill. A good start for an elementary
classroom. Only one other elementary teacher in my district (there are 30 of
us in elementary) even has a computer in their classroom.

No printer, but trying to fund one through a recycling program.
No Digital Camera, no scanner, no drawing tablet...
Need to write a few more grants I guess...
