Mrs. Gowland from Williston FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students our own class laptop for creating and practicing technology use!
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis said, "There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all." My students know my love for reading, and many of my students have that love, as well. My desire is to expose them to as many of the classics as possible.
We are rural, and our community is very small with less than 3,000 residents, and for many of our students, even at the high school level, school is an escape; it is where they receive the encouragement that they do not have at home.
Our school is the only high school in the community. Our community is made up of many families living in poverty and doing their best to try and provide for their children. Much of our community is made up of single-parent homes, and these families are not making enough money to put food on the table, much less buy school supplies. Due to this, many of our students lack what many people take for granted. Our school has many dedicated teachers who make the best of what we have!
The use of technology is a daily requirement in my classroom. From bell work activities to books on CD, having a reliable computer with a CD/DVD drive is important, and now, our “teacher laptops” do not come equipped with these items.
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.
Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and not whether their materials are going to work or not. Plus, in this technology-literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology!
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
