Mrs. Vreeland from Jersey City NJ is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Getting Organized with Technology

My students need a storage cart and charging station for our classroom Chromebooks, and replacement chargers. We also need a desktop laminator and sheets to help us get organized.

My Students

"If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn." Ignacio Estrada.

My special needs students learn in a variety of ways, rarely in a traditional way, but technology helps me reach them all.

My students are special needs, middle school children in grades 6-8.

They attend a K-8, Title I elementary school in an urban district in New Jersey. Many of them are socioeconomically disadvantaged and receive free or reduced-priced lunch. Most of them do not have access to technology at home, and if they do have a computer, they often do not have access to the Internet other than through a parent's cell phone. They all have Individual Education Plans with a variety of learning difficulties. They come to the Resource Room for specialized reading and writing instruction in small groups. Some of them have fine-motor problems that make writing by hand difficult and frustrating, but computers help their ideas to flow and to get their message across. Many of them are far below grade level, but they come to class every day excited about everything they are learning.

My Project

Thanks to the generosity of previous donors and Google, my students already have the Chromebooks they need in the classroom. However, we now need a way to organize our Chromebooks and keep them safe. Some of our chargers have already broken. We use our Chromebooks daily for reading, writing, and math, and they have become an integral part of learning. We want to keep them in good condition for as long as possible so that they can help future students in the Resource Room.

We need a charging cart and new chargers to keep our Chromebooks working.

Now that we are proficient at using the devices, we want to take our learning to the next level. We are also requesting a laminator and sheets to protect the numerous projects we complete in class thanks to access to our Chromebooks.
