Mrs. Smith from Indianapolis IN is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hungry for Headphones!

My students need headphones for their Chromebooks. The headphones we have now are on their last leg and are constantly breaking. This causes many disruptions during the school day.

My Students

I am a second grade teacher in a school that has close to 88% of our families on free and reduced breakfast/lunch. Our school is also very unique and diverse in that we have 17 different languages that are spoken. My classroom is made up of 25 second graders that come from different economic backgrounds and challenges.

Each child in my room learns in his or her own way, so it is my job to meet their individual needs.

My students are motivated, hard working, and love to be engaged on their Chromebooks! Each day I strive to make sure that the boys and girls in my classroom have meaningful learning opportunities and experience technology to the fullest.

My Project

We are lucky enough to have Chromebooks for each student, which allows my kids to take advantage of computer programs such as MyOn, Starfall.com, IXL, Waterford, Brainpop Jr. and Pear Deck. All of these are engaging and offer my students extra reading and math practice while being able to use technology. Technology has also been a vital tool in assisting my students with special needs and those that have English as their second language.

Currently, most of our headphones that we have are broken and needing to be replaced.

Having reliable headphones would offer my students the opportunity to stay focused on the educational programs and websites without any interruptions. With your generous donations, you can help make this possible.
