Ms. Hellman from Baltimore MD is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are joyful, rambunctious, high energy and full of life. They all have big dreams-to be lawyers, basketball players, college graduates, astronomers, and more.

I teach a self-contained, special education class in Baltimore, at a Title I school where one hundred percent of students receive free lunch.

They are all unique in their personalities and learning styles, and demonstrate their knowledge in different ways. In my classroom, they learn critical academic, behavioral, and life skills. I want to give them all the tools they need to be successful and accomplish their goals.

My Project

My classroom has been lucky enough to receive lots of technology from DonorsChoose.org. This equipment, including multiple laptops and tablets, has transformed our learning experience this school year. Now, my students and I are ready to make that experience even better!

The materials requested will ensure that we are using our technology to its maximum capability, gaining as much as we can from what we have been given.

The licensing software will allow me to set up profiles for each student on our Chromebooks so they can go straight to the websites and apps that will help them practice the skills they need. The power strip will allow us to more effectively organize our technology center so we can take and put back materials as efficiently as possible. Lastly, the new tablet and case will allow more students to access our educational websites and apps at once.
