Mrs. Fitzsimmons from Kenner LA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Us Hear!

My students need a speaker so they can hear the teacher when they are outside for class.

My Students

My classroom consists of several classes ranging from Kindergarten through eighth grade. My students are eager to learn every day. We believe that with hard work we can achieve anything we set our minds to.

I work at a school where 75 percent of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

It can be difficult for families to provide additional resources at home, such as technology, to be able to practice the skills they have learned at school. Despite the challenges that children may face, they work hard every day to persevere.

My Project

We are outside in a field all day, sometimes with over 200 kids at a time. It is very difficult for out students to hear us for directions. This speaker will make a world of difference. We are hoping we will be able to speak on the microphone and be able to stream music through Bluetooth. Having this speaker, will let us run our classes more smoothly. We will be able to transition faster and be more organized. We want our students to know what they are doing the first time we give directions, along with why we are doing this.
