Mrs. Gunter from Thermal CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Equipment Needed!

My students need speakers so that they can hear when we are doing whole class digital presentations. They also need a non-electric carpet sweeper so they can keep the classroom clean in between vacuuming days.

My Students

My students are primarily from low socio-economic households. Our school district is 90+% second language learners who need a wide variety of experiences to succeed, and our school is 40 miles away from the nearest shopping.

Our district provides little in the way of P.E.

equipment, art supplies, or project supplies. I have students who are gifted in many different areas, and it is my goal to help students succeed and have diverse experiences. I end up spending a lot of my own money.

My Project

My students need to take pride in their classroom and keeping it clean is part of that. A non-electric carpet sweeper will make the task appealing. (ie: We have a 'sanitation engineer' rather than a trash monitor to oversee the daily clean-up.) The students will then see the job as a desireable one!

We also need speakers to connect with a computer or iPad.

When we do whole class, digital presentations it is often difficult for them hear from across the room without speakers attached. Some of these presentations are teacher led, some of them are generated by the students themselves.
