Mrs. Guerrero-Garza from Houston TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

New Chromebooks Need Safe Storage

My students need a ECR4Kids 30 Bay Locking Laptop/Tablet Charging Station Cart with Keypad Entry to safely store the recently gifted Chromebooks.

My Students

I am a teacher in a Title I school so my students encounter many challenges in their lives. Many of them are being raised by a single parent or grandparent. In some cases, both parents live in the same house and work two jobs and the students still receive free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. This may prevent them, in some cases, from experiencing things that many of us consider "ordinary or common."

My fifth grade students are gregarious, inquisitive, bilingual children from different countries with similar cultures.

There are always conversations about how they are grateful for being able to enjoy living in the United States. However, since Hurricane Harvey, many of those conversations have been diminished, in some cases silenced.

It is not possible for me to determine the direction their home life unfolds, but what I can do for them is try to provide a classroom in which they can feel safe to experience new things and reach new goals. My goal is to inspire them to academic excellence by reaching their full potential.

My Project

We were recently gifted through Donors Choose some Chromebooks. It is very exciting. However, we do not have a way to securely store them. We would like to have a designated secure unit to keep in our classroom.

My students need a ECR4Kids 30 Bay Locking Laptop/Tablet Charging Station Cart with Keypad Entry to organize, charge and store the Chromebooks.

Some of my students have already planned out where this charging station would be placed in our classroom, if our project gets funded. Your generous donation will help keep our new Chromebooks stored securely all year long, including summer time.
