Mrs. Whitaker from Millbrook AL is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Safe Mission

My students need to know that they’re safe in my classroom and that I have access to administrators.

My Students

I work at a Title I school so my students get the majority of their experiences from my classroom and the community outings that we can provide. The community around is full of hardworking, majority single parent homes. My students come to school eager to learn and looking for new and exciting ways to learn. My students range from multi-handicapped to intellectually disabled. The students have been overlooked too many times, and this is my opportunity to face them and give them the opportunities they deserve as students.

My Project

My students are severe and profound. Some students have severe behavioral needs that need immediate back up. At times I’m not able to get to a phone and a two way radio could save a life one day. Two way radios could give me immediate access to administators and the nurse for individual needs as the behaviors arise. This is an immediate need in my classroom to reassure my students that they are safe and secure while they are learning. Please help me by supporting this cause to give my students and myself the peace of mind while at school.
