Ms. Cantillon from Chicago IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Can you Hear me Now?

Help me give my students sound with speakers that will help me show examples of video clips and lessons to reteach with another speaker's voice.

My Students

I work at a Chicago, public, neighborhood school currently with sixth, seventh and eighth grade students of various ability levels. My students are primarily diverse learners that have Individual Education Plans (IEPs) in the general education setting and the separate setting.

My students are visual, auditory and kinesthetic learners that learn best through a multi-sensory instructional approach.

My current classroom is in a kindergarten through eighth grade school building; however, most of these students are in this separate classroom, my classroom, for at least sixty percent of the school day. I work with a variety of age groups within our school.

I work at an outstanding school with hard working and collaborative teachers and staff members. We share a great deal of our resources whenever possible. Thank you for looking at my page.

My Project

In today’s day in age, you need to create a classroom of rapport and respect, while engaging our students with various modes of instruction.

These computer speakers will not only provide sound for various types of academic lessons, but will support various types of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) lessons.

I have found that after a few weeks and maybe months, our students might tune me out. Instructional materials that we have access to online will play video clips to help reteach concepts that I have already instructed. Sometimes hearing a different voice truly helps.

Thank you for taking the time to read through these educational proposals. Please help me to help our students and future leaders of tomorrow.
