Mrs. Roche from San Lorenzo CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help us read

My students need an iPad Mini and books to help with reading and using technology.

My Students

Imagine you are 8 or 9 years and can't read or write. You depend on school for help with everything. I have a dream that every child in my room go to college. To make that possible I need your help so they can see the world and have a better life than the one they have now.

My students come from a very low socioeconomic title 1 school.

They move around a lot and learning is hard. Also, over 3/4 speak another language so there is no help from home. They don't have books or computers. Please fund us so we can offer them the resources to help them succeed.

My Project

The books I am ordering are historical fiction. I can supplement them and teach reading and history at the same time. The iPad will allow me to connect to a smart board to bring the books to life with videos and interactive games. There is so much available on line that I could use to teach, but I need an iPad to connect to my smart board in order to do that type of teaching

Students love history and this will allow them to understand the world they live in.

Most only know school and are staying in an apartment. They don't travel or go anywhere because of their economic situation.
