Mr. L. from Lawndale CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Keep Our Future Leaders Tech-Savvy!

My students need 9 TI Graphing calculators in order to see Mathematics in full range and to stay competitive in our continuously tech-savvy world.

  • $1,325 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

How can we train our future leaders of a technological world if they are not given the opportunity to utilize technology? We need your help! With your generous help, our kids will be able to utilize TI graphing calculators to put mathematical theories into action!

Most of my students come from a single-parent household and will be the first in their family to go to college.

Some come from households where college is not an option because they have to take care of the rent. I am a product of this school and I came back to teach, to show students that success is definitely within reach. My students are taught to stay hungry, humble, and to always be the hardest worker in the room. My innovative students have the drive to succeed, but fail to have the proper resources to stay competitive in the collegiate world. My students understand that hard work will always pay off; I'm hoping that you can lend a hand in making sure that they're great efforts don't go unnoticed.

My Project

My students will be able to apply their mathematical concepts in a realistic world setting. Math will no longer be learned in theory, but rather by practice. Students will be able to apply projectile motion, architectural design, trends in climate change and carbon dioxide emissions, by using the requested TI graphing calculators. By the time they graduate, I want our future leaders to be exposed to STEM majors and professions to develop innovative ways of being "green" and energy efficient.

I am training my students to become STEM-ready and -motivated by the time they enter college.

We are in dire need of strong innovative leaders in the STEM fields. Students often don't find they're niche until they get to college. I'm hoping to amplify their interests in STEM prior to entering college. In the long run, these students will not only change the world, but will also serve as models of success in our school and community.
