Mrs. Mercer from Jacksonville FL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hocus Pocus Everybody Focus

My students need headphones to be able to focus on their student specific instruction! Students are frequently on the computer completing tasks that are perfect for their needs.

My Students

Do you know what unconditional love feels like? I might not have it exactly down, but I know what walking into my room of 18 students feels like and it’s got to be close. My students know how to care for each other.

My student are from a low income area of Jacksonville, FL.

They are resilient, they are giving, and they are caring. My students are capable and brilliant, but need some help to get to their best potential.

My Project

My students will be so excited to receive their own set of "awesome headphones"! To begin each year, we send home a list of common supplies, headphones are one of those! While for some families this is no problem, many families in my school struggle to provide general supplies for their student, let alone headphones.

My students are deserving of a gift that will benefit them DAILY in the classroom and allow them to truly focus on their lessons.

This project will ensure that every student is able to have their very own headphones to perform their best every day!
