Mrs. Perez from Giddings TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Even Technology Needs a Safe Place!

Help me give my students a safe place to store and charge their chromebooks and kindles instead of using several, dangerous extension cords.

My Students

We are a tile I school and over half of my students come from low income families that have a desire to increase their learning. We become a school family and I stress the importance of kindness and helping each other so that we can become a family, but I feel they need better classroom items to become a more successful learner. My students have a love for learning and are very eager to grow.

My students are all unique and deserve the best when it comes to their education and I want to give them excellence as a teacher as well as the environment I have in my classroom.

My Project

Although we are a smaller school, my students are blessed enough to have 10 chromebooks and 6 kindles in the classroom for a better learning experience, but we need a safe place to store them. I am currently using several extension cords connected to each other which is dangerous and it's running across their reading area. These charging carts are also small enough to store them on a bookshelf so it's not taking up their learning space. I'm ready for a safer environment for my students to read on and not share the carpet with an extension cord. Please help!
