Mrs. Semmes from Meridian MS is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Little Genius Techs

My students need an Osmo Genius Kit and the Apple iPad mini to help expand their reading and math skills. Having these items will also allow for more experience with technology.

My Students

I am a teacher at a rural school of grades K-4. My classroom is made up of students who are eager to learn! They have inquiring minds and soak up information. They enjoy being able to discover and explore new ideas through hands-on activities.

My students love to be presented with challenges that give them the opportunity to collaborate and think outside of the box.

I am blessed to have the privilege to be able to teach each of my students. I love being able to share in their joy for learning each day.

My Project

Our elementary school is incorporating STEM into our curriculum and we need the technology and engineering supplies for it to be effective. Having the Osmo Genius Kit and iPad mini will allow my students to have the technology to enhance their reading and math skills.

Because more than one third of our students are from low-income households, these materials are necessary for them to be successful in the classroom and everyday life.

Funds for technology are low in our district. This project will help provide the proper technology to allow my students to expand on current classroom skills. It will also help to prepare them for a future where technology and engineering will be the norm. Thank you for all your help!
