Ms. Kutch from Brooklyn NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

21st Century Needs

My students need 1 laptop computer, 1 printer/scanner/copier and extra ink cartridges.

  • $1,125 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a first grade teacher at an urban school in New York where the students are regularly confronted with violence and economic struggles. My students are able to escape these issues when they enter our school. They come to me with an eagerness to learn and a desire to achieve. I want to help encourage this ambition by providing them with the examples and resources that they need, as well as an exciting and inviting place to learn.

Recently our school has been fortunate enough to receive grants that give our students access to online computer programs that can be individualized to meet student needs. Unfortunately, our classroom only has 1 working computer to access these sites.

I am asking for 1 additional laptop and a printer so that students can access these amazing reading and math sites on their own. I want to allow students to use the computers each day to help strugglers practice necessary skills as well as challenge those that have already mastered them. I also want students to be able to use publishing software for their writing and the printer will help make their work truly come to life. I know that having these resources in our room will help my students achieve even higher levels and will allow us to take full advantage of the opportunities our school has been given.

Your donation will help make it possible for my students to read books on their level while testing their comprehension. It will give us access to a math program that can be specialized to provide students with individual activities based upon skills that they need to work on. It will also provide us with reference materials, and a huge motivation to read and learn, as well as a way to publish their writing and create color copies to keep in the classroom library. These resources will be a huge leap into the 21st century of learning that our students truly need. Please help us get the technology we need to be a modern and successful classroom.
