Ms. Serilla from Chicago IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Many Minds, One Focus Point

My students need a common interface. I teach in three or four different classrooms each day. A projector that I can take from room to room allows us to share a simple, common display everywhere!

My Students

For most of my students, the path toward my high school started a decade ago. They have worked with their families and their teachers for their whole young lives for the opportunity to join my school's selective ranks. Their reward for a lifetime of focus, talent and hard work? More hard work in a giant school packed with scholars.

They're resilient, they're ambitious and their futures are boundless.

I want to challenge them every day because each day they will rise up.

My Project

I teach in three or four different rooms each day. With this arrangement, I have one room with a whiteboard, one with a projector and one with a SMART Board. Since all of my classes need the same resources and access, I need a common way to present texts, instructions and assignments.

With a projector that I can cart from room to room, I will streamline and optimize my instructional strategies instead of making due with each room's limitations.

We will refer to Google Classroom for instructions, look at essay samples, and record ideas for later reference.

How do you stay sane and organized in three or four different rooms? With one, self-sufficient projector cart!
