Mrs. Tritto from East Boston MA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Us See and Hear!

My students need 1 set of speakers so that they can hear their technology and 1 easel so they can see lessons up close and personal!

My Students

My students are all "Students with Interrupted Formal Education" who live in Boston. They range from third graders to fifth graders. My students have faced numerous struggles in order to get to where they are today. Unfortunately, they still have many struggles ahead of them. My students must not only acclimate to being in a school setting again, but they also must learn a foreign language. Can you imagine what it would feel like to be immersed in a language that you do not know? My students live that every day.

My students are dedicated to bettering themselves through their education, and they work tremendously hard every day to succeed in a country where they do not speak the language.

My job is to make their job easier, and to guide them to be the best that they can be.

My Project

My students need to be able to see and hear clearly in order to be able to engage effectively with our curriculum! An easel on wheels will allow the white board to travel around the room to work with small groups as well as allow students to come sit in front of it to work. An easel will also allow my students to get up in front of their group and show their work! The bins on the back of the easel will allow students to organize materials by subject matter in order to help them stay organized. My students work best in a classroom that is organized.

My students are amazing!

They deserve to be able to hear educational videos and songs that I play for them. They also need to be able to hear curriculum materials, testing practices, and other educational materials. These speakers will allow every student in the room to hear equally.
