Mrs. Mohney from South Bend IN is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

May the Luck of the Irish Be With Us!

My students need a bluetooth speaker, a refrigerator to keep tube feeding liquids cool, a microwave to warm purified foods, and an air purifier as soon as possible. Thank you so much!

My Students

Situated a mere seven minutes from a beautiful university, and five minutes from the nearest country club, my students and I spend our day, along with two loving adult paraprofessionals in a classroom with a single exit/entrance which faces a courtyard.

Our classroom is part of the original structure, which was built in the 1950's.

It is the classroom itself that has motivated me to do something out of my comfort zone. Ask for material things. This is serious. It would be a shame if students in the general population were avoiding our classroom . . . because of the classroom. Throwing a "Hail Mary!"

My students come with a collective assortment of cognitive, medical, and behavioral differences. I have extremely high standards and find my students put pressure on themselves to perform. A disappointed look from an adult in the classroom would be enough to motivate each one of these students to do their best. I am extremely proud of my students' abilities and talents, and take every opportunity to encourage their confidence and independent thinking skills both at school and while out in the community.

*I want regular ed kids coming in and hanging out with our kids.

My Project

The Honeywell Quiet Clean Tower Air Purifier With Permanent Filter will be such a blessing as fifty percent of my students are unable to use the restroom without assistance. In addition, there has been instances of vomit following tube feedings spilling into the already worn carpet. Hoping and praying for an air purifying system this school year!

The mini refrigerator is needed for the liquids that come in for tube feedings, and the microwave is for the mashed up food for spoon feedings.

The bluetooth radio is to play soothing music when the student begins to have muscle cramps, anxiety attacks, or is coming off a seizure and needs something extra soothing to calm down.

The Wiggle Cushion would be awesome in helping my student have an extra special place to sit. This special cushion will serve to help him remain "grounded" and remain more focused at the task at hand. Looking forward to seeing the expression on his face when it arrives and sharing his excitement with you!

Thank you so much for being part of our class family! (Like an out of town relative!) GO TEAM! READY???? BREAK!!!!!
