Mrs. Erne-Webber from Sun Valley CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Accessing the World for all

My students need audio recordings of 4 classic books, especially for those who have difficulties with reading, and a computer to allow more students to complete projects.

My Students

Have you ever come across a word you couldn't pronounce and you got so focused on it you forgot about what you were reading? Have you ever waited for something when you were in a hurry and felt panic that you would run out of time? Some of my students experience this on a daily basis.

My students sometimes include those with disabilities, which means they can have difficulties reading long novels.

This doesn't mean they shouldn't enter the world of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 where they learn the dangers of not being educated and not thinking for themselves. Audio books allow my students to keep up in their classes with the story being read to them, so they don’t stop because they can’t read a word and get frustrated. They 4 chosen books on CD are on the class reading lists from 9th through 12th grade and would be wonderful for the learning center to have to help engage students in the novels.

My Project

In addition, another laptop for our Learning Center would mean students don’t have to wait half the class time to get onto a computer to complete projects for biology, English, history or math. I feel awful watching students get frustrated as the clock ticks by and those are minutes they desperately need to be working on their studies. They do PowerPoint presentations, type essays, research for papers and apply for college.

With your donation, we can become more efficient at helping students reach their full potential.

One of my students said, “Many of you think your classes are hard and maybe they are, but that’s no excuse for you to give up.” Removing obstacles helps my students push that much harder. With your donations we can make the path clearer. Thank you in advance for caring.
