Mrs. Pflucker from Miami FL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Margaret Fuller once said, "Fair isn't everyone getting the same thing. Fair is everyone getting what they need in order to be successful." I firmly believe every child should have access to a wide variety of educational tools in order to successfully implement learning in their everyday lives.

I teach a group of forty bright and eager-to-learn second grade students who come from many different backgrounds.

My students face many challenges because of their limited knowledge of the English language. Over 90% of the students at my school receive free and reduced price lunch, which makes our school a Title I school. These children have little access, if none, to technology at home. My students are a wonderful and sweet bunch. They are grateful for the opportunities they have to learn, and I enjoy sharing my passion of teaching reading and writing with my eager learners.

My Project

The addition of an iPad and case would grant my students access to numerous resources, such as leveled appropriate books and apps. It would be utilized in our small group literacy centers. It will create an interactive and highly engaging way to learn. An iPad would greatly benefit and meet the needs of the different learning styles of my visual and auditory learners. All children enjoy technology to learn. Will you make it happen for us?

With your support and the addition of an iPad in my classroom, my kids will have the opportunity to amazing resources.

Help me give my students the opportunity to learn with technology in an exciting new way. Please consider helping me build their knowledge and make a difference in their education.
