Mrs. Ketterer from Hamilton NJ is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Everyone Has A Voice!

My students need the Qball microphone so they can all have a voice in the classroom. The Qball will allow the students to share their ideas with their peers.

My Students

We are a Title 1 school where many students receive free/reduced breakfast and lunch. We are a school where the students have to grow up too fast and school is not necessarily the #1 priority at home. We are a school where many of the students go home and speak a different language because that is all their parents understand. We are a school that believes our students can accomplish anything.

These students are the most genuine, hardworking, and motivated students I have had the honor of teaching.

However, being we are a Title 1 school, financial support is tough. Please help me help my students.

My Project

This will allow all of my students to be heard. They can share their ideas with their classmates. The idea of the microphone being thrown around will also entice my quieter students to want to join in.

Everyone has a voice, just because you are soft spoken doesn't mean your idea is not important.

With the microphone, they can share reading, writing, math and so much more. In morning meeting, they can share exciting news with each other, which will build our classroom community. It will also set rules for the class, only the person with Qball should be talking. Therefore, everyone is listening and respecting the speaker.
