Mr. Ribas from Inglewood CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Everyone Matters!

My students need an Ipad Mini and case to use for in-classroom and at home projects.

My Students

Have you ever tried to explain something in words, but felt it would be easier to do so in pictures? Wouldn't it be great if students could tell AND show us what their lives are all about? Students are more likely to complete assignments when they feel that what they have to say, matters.

My students' neighborhood is known for gang activity, but this is not what this community is all about.

A large majority of the families that live in this neighborhood are immigrant families. They have risked it all to come to this country in search of a better life for their families. They are proud, hard-working people that strive to provide for their children, the opportunities that they never had as a child. The students who attend this school, and my classroom in particular, demonstrate exemplary character on a daily basis. They are motivated and are eager to learn.

My Project

Parents are always asking me how their children are doing in school. The resources I'm requesting would allow me to video my students during class assignments, so that I could upload them to our webpage for parents to see their children in action at school. Parents could see and listen to their children's projects presentations, singing and dancing, group discussions, field trips, plus many other events that our parents are unable to attend due to their jobs constraints. This technology would bridge the gap between home and school, and strengthen the ties between two factors that are vital to each person's success, family and education. Students would also check-out the Ipad to conduct projects at home. This opportunity would engage students like never before. Students could share with classmates, a glimpse of what their lives are like outside of school (pets, families, birthdays, field trips, sports, etc.).

As a parent, I would love to see what my children do at school each day.

I often find myself wishing that I could see and hear my daughter's singing performance, that I could be present for my son's project presentation, etc. The technology that I am requesting would turn those wishes into reality, as parents would get to witness all of these special events from home, while at the same time, it would allow them to share their special moments from home, with all of their children's classmates.
