Ms. LeCours from Lawrence MA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Improvising Within Our Three Walls

My students need this whiteboard to serve as not only a way to present materials, but as a projection screen and most importantly, as a wall to help divide them from a busy hallway.

My Students

My students are in a therapeutic high school that helps them not only academically, but socially, emotionally and through a life skills program. Even with all students having an emotional disability, the students and staff work endlessly together to excel in, and outside of the classroom.

English is a second language for many of our students and although they live in one of the poorest cities in Massachusetts, they are some of the strongest, most resilient students I have ever met.

My students are getting ready for the real world and looking for new ways to learn skills to make themselves productive young adults.

My Project

My students deserve a space that is conducive to learning. Because space is at a minimum in our school, my classroom space is rather unconventional and is located off of a busy hallway with no wall separating it from our learning space. This causes a lot of distraction.

This rolling white board will serve as a much needed temporary wall during instruction time, but will also serve as a way to display classroom information and as a projector screen.

Please help me provide my students with a classroom where they can succeed and make the most of the space we have.
