Mrs. B. from Delano CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Next Generation Thinkers!

My students need digital cameras, STEM materials, and the Amazon Echo as a voice activated search engine for instant access to questioning and research. Our goal is to be next generation thinkers and doers.

My Students

My students are wonderful kids with a great attitude towards learning! Coming from a large agricultural community, many of the families we serve are of low socioeconomic background. Parents send their children to school each day with the hopes of improving their lives through education and we do our best to make that happen.

It is my sincere hope that this project will be funded in order to enrich the lives of the children we serve in this school and in turn in the community.

My Project

We, as educators, are creating the next generation thinkers by promoting learning through access and hands on experimentation.

The classroom should be a place where learning is an experience.

And, students should have mobility both in and out of the classroom while learning.

It is my hope that these materials will engage students in the learning process and enrich their knowledge base by incorporating technology and allowing them the opportunity to predict, research, and record. My goal is to promote forward thinking learners who seek out careers in which they have a passion for, and by which they will positively impact their communities.
