Ms. Johnson from Chicago IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Power To Keep Our Students Strong!

Help me give my students portable chargers for iPads for students who are in-person learning. Students should be six feet apart while in the classroom. Having long extension cords running everywhere is not safe.

My Students

Our school community is made up of diverse learners that are unique. Everyone has their own personality and their own way of expressing how they feel. Our goal is to get them to work at their maximum ability and to get them to work as independently as possible. We love them because they love how we help them!

My Project

Having portable chargers for IPads will allow our student that came back to the classroom to stay connected with the lesson while staying 6 feet apart according to the CDC guidelines. Most classrooms don't have enough sockets for everyone to charge their device during the day. Instead of using multiple extension cords that can trip students up, they can have a portable charger that will give them a recharge during the day while remaining safe. The charger will be kept in their classroom ready for them to use while in school.
