Mr. Thomas from Lake Havasu City AZ is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Computer Lab, Brightens Students Lives

My students need this new laptop, as we do many online, engaging activities and lessons. Unfortunately, many of these wonderful kids don't have any access to computers, as financial issues prohibit such activities. Thank you!

My Students

My students are brilliant, funny and they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Please consider our classroom, HELP! Our 5th grade class is made up of a wonderful, diverse group of young people! Many of these students don't have access to computers or technology, simply due to financial hardships. I'm terribly afraid that they won't have the basic skills that many of us take for granted, thus, increasing the chances that they will be left behind in today's world of technology. These kids are KIND, they are HARD WORKING, and I would love to see them benefit from the gift of technology-based learning! I have personally purchased and gathered several computers from friends and family in order to begin my dream of a classroom computer lab, and with YOUR help we could get one more laptop and see this dream fulfilled. Thank you for your consideration.
