Ms. Sturges from Tampa FL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Headphones Needed!

My students need 12 headphones to listen to and interact with the amazing computer programs my school has to offer. My students love getting on the computer to learn.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students come from such a poor background that they cannot connect to learning like other kids can. They are handicapped by their lack of exposure to the real world.

I have a wonderful groups of 5th graders!

They are full of life, personality, and love. Many of them do not get the attention they need at home so I end up being their teacher, mother and friend. They keep me laughing and guessing all day long which is when true learning occurs.

My Project

These 12 headphones are important because my students need the exposure to different modes of learning. They can watch educational videos, read books on-line, learn their math facts, and many more things with computer access. I have 7 computers in my classroom and they all need headphones.

This donation will make a huge difference in motivating my students to learn and create.

It will inspire them to do and see things that were out of their reach and beyond their imagination.
