Ms. Davis Riley from Providence RI is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hello and thank you so much for visiting my proposal! I teach 4th grade in an inner-city school system. I really feel fortunate to be a teacher, because I feel the possibilities are endless in educating children. What we lack in resources, we more than make up for in our enthusiasm and drive! One of the best years of my career was 2 years ago, when my grade level won, through a grant technology for the classroom. I was fortunate enough to get a laptop!!! The next year, I was fortunate to get an ELMO through Donors Choose! The problem is that the projector I currently have is not doing so good. It is past its warranty and would be very costly to fix...almost the price of a new one! Without a projector, none of the technology components I have, are of any use! I use my technology 100% to teach...every single day.For example, when I use my ELMO, I am able to clearly model math, writing, and science, show how to use manipulatives, and even put a book I am reading to be projected! On my laptop, I can project writing, the science process, and show interactive websites! In fact, since I have had it, my students' scores have SKYROCKETED and I know that it can be attributed to learning this way. A projector would allow me to keep using my technology. This would be such a wonderful, wonderful gift. I cannot express enough how teaching through technology makes such a difference!!!My students are second language learners and being able to see things via projector makes a WORLD of difference. Thank you so much for considering this project!!!!
