Mrs. Jones from Thibodaux LA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I Was Bored but Not Anymore!

Help me give my students the opportunity to focus and learn Microsoft Office programs at an advanced level, and give students the opportunity to present their work examples to parents, future employers, and colleges.

My Students

My students are creative, go beyond what is expected, and enjoy putting their creative ideas into a project! They absolutely love the hands-on, active, engaging projects that challenge them and allow them to think outside the box! They come to school each day ready to put their ideas together and graciously grow both personally and academically. They are a special group of students who inspire me to be better!

Students enjoy the challenge of creating personal, academic, and professional documents, brochures, and presentations but most assignments are repetitive; therefore, it’s difficult to remain focused because of the lack of classroom supplies.

Our school is located in a small town in Louisiana, where the school district has had major cuts because of their financial deficit. Now, with cuts in our school funding and families not able to buy supplies, students are not able to print out their projects that they work very hard to create.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. All students are motivated to continue to work at their best when they can print their work.

My Project

All of my students are eager to learn the programs from Microsoft Office 2016 so that they are able to create and present academic, personal, and professional documents. Our school has limited financial resources and are not able to provide printer ink toner and other supplies to print and present students work. In class, these supplies will provide students the opportunity to see and show their creative documents on paper. This will motivate them to see the level of work they are creating and encourage them to stay focus and continue to get learn so that their skill level in the Microsoft Office programs will be advanced. Printing out projects will allow students to show work examples to parents, future employers, and/or colleges.
