Mrs. Murphy from Sunbury PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Equal Opportunities Means Special Equipment for ALL Disabled Students

Help me give my students a Qball so their voices can be heard, flexible seating to help eliminate fatigue and wireless mice so they can access programs on their Chromebooks without a restrictive touchpad.

My Students

I work with the greatest young minds in the central Pennsylvania area! My students all have severe intellectual disabilities, which used to be referred to as Mental Retardation. All my students come to school eager to learn and further their skills. They participate in individualized activities specifically designed to build upon their present levels. They tell me how much they love school and how I’ve made learning fun. They say they feel special when I use their names and interests in their reading stories and activities within the classroom. They do not allow their disabilities to prohibit them from participating in normal activities and have encouraged each other, and their non disabled peers to strive for and reach their goals. They are proven inspirations to all who know them.

My Project

The students in my classroom will benefit for the specialized equipment I'm requesting on a daily basis. The Qball I've requested will allow students with speech disabilities to have their voices amplified and more easily understood, while making it fun and easy for all students to participate so they will not be singled out. The flexible seating options I have requested for my classroom will allow students the flexibility to frequently change positions throughout the day decreasing fatigue. The wireless mice I have requested will allow the students with fine motor needs to more easily access the technology utilized by the district.

I truly believe that ALL students with disabilities can boost their academic, social and emotional skills daily given the proper supports.

Your donation will give these students the fundamental tools they deserve, and require, to fully participate in the education provided to them. With your assistance they can become successful members of their communities.
