Mrs. Miller from Philadelphia PA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Community Based Vocational Program

My students need a projector to view educational materials. We are an offsite special needs vocational classroom with limited materials and supplies.

  • $797 goal

This project expired on December 19, 2013.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Be the change you want to see in the special needs vocational education classroom. Technology will open our minds and experiences. Reading, math, geography, science, job training can be some of the many resources the students can research. My students need to see the world outside our classroom.

My students are great.

They attend an offsite, vocational program, which has an overall graduation rate of 90% . The students attend everyday and are eager to learn. Our program is part of the Philadelphia School District. At the present time, we are limited to a small blackboard which is difficult to see. Please help my students expand their learning experiences.

My Project

A projector with a carrying case would allow my students to see what I am teaching. They would be able to interact with both the teacher and their classmates. Research shows that many special needs students are visual learners, this would be a great asset to the classroom.

We have very limited resources in our school.

With help from others, we could expand our minds. Your donation will make a huge difference in my classroom. Please consider supporting this project. This will open up the world to them.
