I am a fifth grade teacher at Doolittle East School, in the south side of Chicago. I am incredibly blessed to have a great class full of students eager to learn. Supplies at the school are not always as readily available and there are not enough projectors for the teachers. I have been lucky enough to have friendly teachers willing to share when they can, but I would love to be able to have a projector available to our classroom at all times. I have been so impressed with my students' desire to read, and we are working now and writing grammatically correct essays. Many of these concepts are so much easier to have right in front of the student, with me showing the editing tricks, but as it is we are trying to work with dittoed sheets. This is not as effective. I have already seen the benefits of having high expectations for these students, and I want to do everything in my power to help them excel. I appreciate this wonderful opportunity at DonorsChoose.org - Thank you!!!
