Ms. Persichilli from Bronx NY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chromebooks to Access Google Classroom

Help me give my students the access to internet and computer skills. Coming from low-income homes prevents many students from having access to technology at home so please help me bring it to my classroom!

My Students

My main goal as a classroom teacher is to create and environment where every student can learn and showcase what they have learned in a way that is unique to them. My classroom is filled with amazing students from various walks of life. I teach students with various social-emotional and educational needs. Some of which also are English Language Learners. On top of any academic or social battles these students are facing, some live in shelters, come from single-parent homes and are facing poverty. My students come from a variety of different backgrounds but still strive to excel and find happiness in their school environment. Every day students come in ready to challenge themselves and work towards their goals. As an educator it is my job to create a space where they can forget about their struggles for a while and focus on brightening their future through education. My students show me every day that although life may be difficult there are still many ways to succeed.

My Project

Many of my students come from low-income homes which prevent them from having access to basic technology. By funding my project you will be helping me give all my students a chance to learn in the way of the future. Most of us take for granted our access to basic internet and computers not realizing many do not share these luxuries.

By funding Chromebooks my students will have access to the internet for research, Google Classroom to complete assignments, as well as many educational websites to reinforce skills.

This will also ensure they are prepared them for middle school. I will only receive these materials if my project is fully funded by March 27!
