Ms. Morales from Pomona CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Safe and Sound!

Help me give my students a safe environment with some technology. Our students just got Chromebooks and we need some headphones for class.

My Students

My students are amazing. They have IEPs and some challenges. But they show up every day through the good and the bad. Our neighborhood is 97% Latino, and most of our students have major financial needs. Most of my students have never really been to a museum or been exposed to things outside of Pomona.

Our special education program received a Golden Ribbon award for having an excellent and inventive program.

Our students work hard and never give up. I have had 100% graduation rates with students on my caseload for the three years I have been at our school. These kids strive every day and unfortunately are not given much for it.

My Project

Safe and sound is the goal. The door mat will keep us safe. The large mat is so necessary. I spent 30 dollars on a mat but it is too small. When it rains, the floor gets so wet and we don't have carpet. The district won't provide door mats even after we requested them.

Speakers and headphones are needed to bring life to our classroom and activities.

We now have Chromebooks but no headphones or speakers. Due to budget constraints they will not be given to us. My students need these things to feel successful and safe. The headphones allow them to watch educational videos and do research using their Chromebooks. The headphones and speaker will also allow us to access the videos independently for our math and language arts program.
