Hello, I am a fifth grade special education inclusion teacher at a highly disadvantaged public school in the South Bronx. One hundred percent of my students receive free lunch as does 96% of the school. In my classroom, we do not have a working overhead projector. Our current machine is old, blurry, and rattles loudly whenever you turn it on. This is extremely frustrating for my students, who love to see their tasks put on the board. An overhead projector would help my students everyday in every subject. They would be able to see activities modeled for them on authentic materials in math as well as writing. In reading, we would be able to all read the same passage when class-copies are not available. Additionally, they would be able to see one another's work put on an overhead! They already love to read one another's stories and this would be a great way for them to learn from each other. One of the best advantages to an overhead is allowing students to "be the teacher" and model a problem for their classmates. This builds their confidence and skills in speaking in front of a group. Overall, an overhead projector would revolutionize the day to day teaching and lesson effectiveness in my classroom. Thank you so much in advance for your generous donations!
