Mrs. Pesarchick from Auburn NY is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Comfortable Learning Environment

My students need an air conditioner to help control the heat in the classroom. Our room gets all day sun and the heat makes learning a struggle at times.

My Students

I have a classroom full of 20 energetic kindergarteners. My students are wonderful and eager to learn. They come from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Our classroom is designed in a way to allow each child to learn in a way that works best for him/her. We use many different styles of learning to help best meet the needs of this diverse group.

Our classroom does hinder learning at times, due to the heat.

An air conditioner would allow my students to be able to focus their attention and be successful in their learning.

My Project

Imagine trying to do your best work, but the heat is too much to handle. That is what it is like for my students. Our classroom gets all day sun and the temperature continues to rise throughout the day, to the point that our materials begin to melt. The heat makes it difficult for my students to remain focused and do their best work.

Having an air conditioner installed will allow my students to work in an environment that allows them to thrive.

They will be able to focus on their learning, instead of the heat, which will allow them to grow and succeed.
