Ms. Robinson from Washington DC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Delivering Education Through Sound

Help me give my students speakers for my classroom so that I can reach my auditory learners. Being a special education teacher requires me to utilize all methods of teaching so that I can reach all students.

My Students

My students are creative, loving and deserving of an equitable education. Often times, special education students are forgotten about; left to fail due to systemic oppression and inequalities. However, it is important to remember that these students are people. They have futures. They are not their disabilities; they are so much more.

This year, our students will be learning fractions, decimals, mixed numbers and basic algebra functions.

Math is already a tough subject to follow and many of my students will benefit from the use of different tools during class time and exams.

My Project

As a special education teacher, I have been tasked with teaching students of all different learning styles. While some students learn best with manipulatives, some learn best through sound. Unfortunately, our school does not have enough computer speakers for each classroom.

With speakers, I will be able to grow as a teacher and differentiate my instruction to meet the needs of all my students.

I will be able to experiment with different programs and create lessons in various forms.

Often times, teachers focus on the visual learner- forgetting that there are various learning styles. With speakers, my students will be exposed to all styles of learning and will be more likely to internalize the information I am teaching.
