Mrs. Monahan from Mer Rouge LA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindles To Brighten Our Lives, And Our Education!

My students need tablets in our computer workstation. These tablets will also allow me to use them as an engagement tool for classroom management (Class Dojo), informal assessments (Daily work and activities) and various educational apps.

My Students

My Students are amazing! You could absolutely mesmerize them!

Students in my school come from a low-income area where 99% of them are awarded free lunch.

Many of them come from broken homes, bounce around to different relatives, and some are even in shelters. The school has 2 classes on each grade, and many classrooms have many students with special needs who need a little extra TLC, visuals, and repetition. My school offers these kids a warm, safe, and loving environment daily. Although most students have a tough start in life, they are as precious and eager to learn as any other student, if not more eager!

My Project

My kids are so eager and excited to see me start up the class computer!

My students embrace technology like you would not believe.

I often bring my tablet from home and they are just mesmerized! With only 1 tablet (my own from home) it is very difficult for each child to get a turn and they learn so much from it! They can't wait to get their turn! Unfortunately our district cannot afford to get these for each child so we have made do with what we have. My students need tablets in our computer workstation.

I cannot imagine how excited and eager to learn they would be if everyone had a turn on tablets in centers each day. I can just see their wide eyes now! Please bless us with this gift. We will use them to their greatest potential.
