Mrs. Costella from Meraux LA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chromebooks for Incredible Learners!

My students need Chromebooks so they can easily access various education programs online.

My Students

My students are incredible in so many ways! Their positive energy and unique personalities would brighten anyone's day. These 1st graders are so excited to become readers and discover new things every day. They may have little bodies, but they have big inquisitive minds!

My students come from a high-poverty community and some may struggle with their exceptionalities, but they continue to perform at such high expectations every day.

Their enthusiasm is infectious and make our learning adventures fun and exciting. My students' love of learning make them one special group of kids!

My Project

The addition of 4 Chromebooks in my classroom will benefit my students tremendously! Our district provides a number of mandated educational programs to be accessed online, but our classrooms are only supplied with five desktop computers to service 20+ students.

The inclusion of technology in my classroom provides additional support and intervention to my students with the most needs, especially when they don't have access to it at home.

The extra Chromebooks will allow for more students to have more time available to access these essential programs throughout the school day. These materials will truly help my students excel in all subjects.
