Mr. Gonzalez from Pacoima CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Me Hear With Headphones

My students need headphones to immerse themselves in the computer programs that aid their learning. The headphones will allow them to focus on the programs by tuning out any ambient noises.

My Students

Our students come from a low-income neighborhood, but that doesn't mean they have any less motivation to succeed. Our students are eager learners who want nothing more than to do great in life. Because we are located in a low-income neighborhood, our students aren't always equipped with all the tools they need to be the best they can be. With this in mind, our equipment isn't always the best either and breaks often.

When it comes to giving it their all, our students are ready to put in work.

When our students aren't able to fulfill their academic goals, it's mainly due to not having all of the necessary tools they need. With your donations, we will be able to help our students to succeed.

My Project

By providing our students with headphones, they will be able to focus on their work without being interrupted by any outside noises. The programs we use provide individualized instruction that caters to our students' needs, but they aren't able to immerse themselves fully unless they have headphones. Your donations will be appreciated and will be used to help our students succeed throughout their academic journey.

"It's too loud in here and I can't focus!" This is what is often heard when using the technology the students have.

Fortunately for us, this problem can be remedied by providing our students with headphones. Your donation will go a long way in helping our students to have a fighting chance at succeeding throughout their education.
