Mrs. Michalski-Geist from Chicago IL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let Me See!

My students need a projector for our classroom so we can learn and see together.

My Students

Have you ever gone to the movies and a tall person sits right in front of you?

My students live in a low income, high poverty area.

School is the safest place for most of the students who attend our school. If you ask anyone about our second grade class, they will say that the second grade students are awesome! They love to learn and they love technology. My students come to school everyday with a hunger for education.

My Project

I am asking for your help in getting my students a classroom projector. My students love technology! Most of the technology my students use is primarily at school. With this projector my students will have more access to play interactive whiteboard games to help with their math and reading skills. We have an abundance of whiteboard games which will help my students with math, reading, following directions, and their test taking skills. The best feature of having a classroom projector is that we can learn and play together as a class.

Having a classroom projector will benefit every child who steps into my classroom.

Students will learn how to work together in small and whole group settings. Students will also learn how to problem solve and make decisions while in a group.
