Ms. Foster from Concord CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fight the Digital Divide!

My students need Chromebooks to bring us back to being a 1:1 classroom where every student has access to a computer.

My Students

At heart, my students are just like middle schoolers anywhere in America. They want to fit in. They want to have friends. They want to be able to express their identities. They are excited about learning, but complain about homework. They want to succeed.

And yet, my students struggle with issues that many other students their age do not.

Roughly half of them are English Learners, whether they were born in the U.S. or they have just moved here. Nearly 90% of them live in poverty. They experience racism and classism far too often, and are grossly underestimated by many members of the surrounding community.

My Project

My school has been lucky enough to be blessed with technology. Every teacher has a chromebook cart in their classroom, which allows us to integrate technology into our lessons seamlessly. However, our chromebooks are aging and some need to be replaced. Also, our class sizes are much bigger than they were when we originally purchased the chromebooks.

This project will allow me to have one chromebook for each student in my classroom.

I will be able to use technology in my teaching again, without having to worry about not having enough chromebooks for all of my students. I will be able to create more interactive assignments, as well as assign more individual listening and speaking activities.
