Mr. Heitman from Corona NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Plan, Scan and Wham!

My students need to be able to receive supplemental material at home. To have a scanner in the class, the students can upload their work to the webpage, and share!

My Students

Can you imagine learning a new subject without any books? My students are not provided textbooks and do not have access to supplemental learning materials. Technology has changed the classroom just as Disney has used technology to change animation. Let's support the children of today with technology.

My students are eager to learn, and always seeking additional resource materials to learn from.

Each time I increase the rigor, they respond with exceptional results. Although a majority of my students come from a challenging socio-economical background, they are not short on determination, will, and pride. Despite their differences, they are good students, who are unified by their diversity, rather than divided. Disney tells us all to wish upon a star. There are stars in my classroom waiting for your support.

My Project

Since the students are not provided with textbooks, and the school library does not support many updated resources, it has been difficult to provide each child with supplemental learning materials to support their progress in class. A scanner will help each student obtain additional source material in an environmentally considerate manner. With a scanner, one digital file can be used by all of the students. Being able to digitally capture and share additional materials will expand the learning potential of each of my students.

This project shows support of the environment, as well as for my students who are eager to learn.

With the ability to create digital files which can be shared, the decreased amount of paper used by my students will be measurable. Additionally, my students will gain access to a variety of resources which would otherwise be difficult to deliver to so many of them in the overcrowded classrooms of the present day. These future leaders and decision makers will make a positive environmental impact.
