Ms. Duarte from Adelanto CA is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Into the New Frontier

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are the most inspirational group I have had the fortune of working with. I work in a migrant farm community where our students make up for what they lack with a motivation to learn and a sense of pride in their community. They come to school ready to face whatever obstacles that come their way!

We are a family serving all students in our community!

We are a free lunch school and offer Tk-8 grade studies. Everyone knows everyone's name!

My Project

Our district has put all our curriculum online but does not have the updated technology to keep up. To facilitate my students' learning I need to be able to access the content available online with technology that is up to date and can keep up with our daily instruction.

I have a need to share core content to my students but lack the dvd player to do so!

I cannot play audiobooks nor can I play the science or social studies movies that come with the curriculum. I have so much to share like virtual field trips but cannot as my laptop is older than me!
