Ms. Brindos from Santa Clara CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Clean & Accessible

My students need a vacuum and Bluetooth mouse for a clean classroom and a teacher who can move about the room when giving presentations.

My Students

Every student should have equal access to the resources they need in order to be successful. My students are hardworking and want to be successful, but we lack some materials to get us there.

Curious, enthusiastic, and creative; my students are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of challenge.

I teach seventh grade science in a high-need community. There is a large special education and English language learner population. We are a Title I school with more than fifty percent of our population receiving free or reduced lunch.

My Project

Having a hand vac will make a difference because I will be able to clean the dust and other small things in the room on a regular basis. The cleaner the room, the more inviting it will be and students with allergies will be able to focus with clearer minds.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

The Bluetooth mouse will allow me to move freely around the room while giving notes so that I can help students in the moment and see where the struggles are.
