Mrs. Chavera from Compton CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Technological Future

My students need four laptops in order to improve language arts and math proficiency, with use of adopted district online programs.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We begin each day with "Breakfast In The Classroom" to ensure every student has the proper nutrition. In their own homes, enough nutritious food, is not always available.

My students live in an area where approximately 80% of the population lives below the poverty line.

Every student in our school qualifies for free lunch because of their economic status. Many of my students endure through hardships that are beyond many peoples understanding. Through all of this my students prevail. They have become and will continue to become people of great character, who will change the world.

My Project

My students struggle for basic necessities of proper nutrition and a jacket, on cold days. Technology is not a readily available tool to them, but is a necessity if they are to overcome their present situations. Technology is the present and the future. My students need access to technology, in order to succeed in today's society. They will learn the basics of how to use technology and will then use technology in order to advance in their academic proficiency.

These laptops will improve our classroom by opening it up to the technological world.

We will be able to bring the world into the classroom and bring the students into the world. We will use them in all academic areas, from language arts to math, from science to the arts. These laptops will enrich my students' lives in ways they are not even aware of, by providing them with a solid foundation in a technological world.
