Mrs. Zoll from Niles MI is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Help My Students Protect Their Resources and Increase Their Efficiency

Help me give my students a case to protect their iPad and a smart keyboard to allow them to have a more efficient tool to work on Math, social/emotional activities, art therapy, and research while in my office.

My Students

As an elementary School Counselor I have the opportunity to work with students ranging from kindergarten through sixth grade at our two elementary schools. These students are young and eager to learn, eager to grow up and I work hard to remind them to live in the moment and enjoy being a kid. All of the students are special in my eyes as they are our future and they keep me humble every day.

My district is over 80% free and reduced lunch, and our community as a whole is in the lower ses.

With that being said, the families of the students I am working with many times struggle to manage their income and bills, adding new and recurring expenses can be very challenging to impossible for many.

My Project

My students received an iPad recently from a previous project. The iPad the students are able to use in my office for Math work, art therapy, research, and social/emotional activities.

This iPad currently does not have a case on it to protect it from the inevitable - fall to the concrete floor.

Additionally, when working on some of the tasks the students have found a keyboard would more the task more efficient.

Please help my students protect their resources! MY students are thankful for the tool and I want to help them protect it and help them with a keyboard so they can be even more efficient as their time in my office is limited.
