Mrs. Romero from Los Angeles CA is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

A MacBook Would Be Magical

I need a MacBook to assist me in accessing a wider variety of professional development opportunities. A MacBook would allow me to continue to provide engaging lessons through the use of technology to my students.

My Students

I need a MacBook laptop for my professional development and to create superior lessons for my amazing students. A MacBook will offer me specialized training to advance my learning to provide engaging and effective lessons to my eager students.

My classroom environment will be greatly improved with the addition of a MacBook because it will allow me to integrate technology that would improve my students' learning outcomes through the curriculum and technology usage, as well as to further my learning to continue to provide effective lessons to my students.

My Project

My students would benefit from the donation of a MacBook because the MacBook would support student learning as well as my growth and professional development. Through the use of the MacBook, I would be able to participate in educational webinars to further and advance myself to continue to provide fun, engaging, educational, and enriching lessons to my students. The students would also be presented with the opportunity to use the MacBook to conduct research, create PowerPoints, access educational applications, and collaborate with their peers to create creative writings for our class newspaper. The MacBook would also be used as a tool to communicate with all the families through the class web page that would be created using the Macbook.
