Mrs. Parks from Myrtle Beach SC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Save The Laptops!

My students need a method to protect the donated laptops from being stolen! They need the De Lite notebook storage cart to protect, store and keep the laptops running tip top!

I teach the people that will change the world. I teach all levels of students. I mainly have 10th graders who are eager to learn. I have two Advanced History classes and one regular world history class. I have a variety of students and that is why I love to teach. I like to see their happy faces undercover history!

Through Donors Choose, students in my classes have received donations for five laptops. We use laptops for many different projects, activities, lessons. The laptops are used on an everyday basis. I feel that students need to know how to use technology when they come into the college and to the job market. Technology and laptops will make students more aware, raise their interest and lets face it, they usually know more than we know...so why not showcase these talents! We have the laptops, we just need to make sure we can keep them!

I want to make sure that the students have the technology they need to enhance learning for jobs and for college. In order to do that, we need to protect the laptops from theft and or damage. The class needs the cart to store the materials so they can continue to learn and grow into those tech savvy adults we want them to be. While the cart may not seem to be a major tool, it is the most important piece to protecting the laptops!

Your donations have done so much to change my students, academically as well as in terms of confidence, support and self-esteem. I ask that you continue to support this classroom and the students who will grow from it. Help us get the laptop cart to protect the laptops!
