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

Let's Leap into Learning with a Laptop!!

My students need a HP mini laptop computer.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our TMH classroom has eight students and only one desktop computer. Many of the students cannot read or write and rely on technology to assist them. A HP mini-laptop will serve many purposes...allowing the independent mobility to serve its many uses throughout the day!

I have eight TMH students, ages 9-12.

They are in 4th-6th grade. Our school is low poverty and cannot afford to purchase computers. All of my students receive a free lunch at school. The students face many challenges throughout the day and range in disabilities including hard of hearing and non-verbal. Having a computer would allow many of these students to fully participate in the daily curriculum while advancing their reading, mathematics, typing, and listening skills.

My Project

Students + HP Mini Laptop = ACADEMIC and SOCIAL SUCCESS! The laptop will used to help these students achieve lifetime success with language arts, mathematics, science, social science, and listening skills. We need your help!! Please help enrich the lives of these students.

"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow..." Please help me allow technology to enrich the lives of these fantastic and well-deserving special needs students!
