Mrs. Mancilla from Whittier CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Out with the Old and In with the New

My students need 5 laptop computers to replace old desktops in the classroom.

My Students

My students work very hard. They love when technology is incorporated into our curriculum. They get so excited to use the Chromebooks (20), computers (5), and iPads (5) that are available in the classroom.

However, they are frustrated when not everyone has access to a Chromebook when we are doing lessons with the whole class.

Five of my students are without a Chromebook to use. They are expected to use outdated computers instead. These students should have equal access to a laptop computer.

My Project

The students in my classroom were lucky enough to receive 20 Chromebooks from the district last year. Unfortunately, I have 25 students so 5 of them have to use the outdated and slow desktop computers while the rest of the class uses their Chromebooks.

These 5 new laptop computers we hope to receive will replace the outdated desktop computers and allow all students to work at their seat on word processing, presentations, and whole class assignments and projects, just as their peers are able to do.

Please help give equal access to each child by funding our project.
