Ms. Morreau from West Allis WI is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Calculators PLEASE

Help me give my students calculators. Class sizes are BIG- 39 in one class! The 30 calculators I purchased in summer are sadly not enough. I need to supplement with more of these terrific devices.

My Students

My school is a multi-cultural, urban high school located just west of Milwaukee. The Mission of my school is to develop inquiry-driven, independent learners through instruction that is personalized and engaging, with a focus on college/career readiness and 21st century skill development.

More than two-thirds of my students come from economically disadvantaged families, and many lack the basic supplies required of high school learners.

Many of them work to help their families or cannot work because they are helping to raise siblings.

I have terrific students who want to learn and want to keep up with their suburban counterparts. The only barriers are the resources they lack.

I love my students' motivation to do well and their perseverance when things get difficult.

My Project

My students love the calculators I procured last summer- especially since they reduce those pesky fractions! Unfortunately, the 30 units I have are not enough for my class of 39. I need to purchase a few more to accommodate my learners.

My students used to rely on phones for calculators, but they need to stay off phones and start practicing using real calculators.

They can use these on practice, assessments, and ACT and/or College Entrance Tests.

Since we teach 7 classes per day at the high school level, it is necessary to have an efficient way to organize student work until it can be returned to students. With one bin per class (plus one extra for teacher papers), these bins will help me keep my classroom organized.
