Ms. Fowler from Summerville SC is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a new PA system to use in music class and in rehearsals.
I teach at a school in suburban South Carolina. These students make up forty-seven classes in grades Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade, including special ed, regular ed, and gifted students. Many of these students come from low income families and they rely on teachers or the school for their materials. All of my students love new experiences. They are always eager to get involved in learning. Our mascot is the “Busy Bee” and we certainly stay busy trying to make every moment count in class!
The music room is a very exciting place to be but it can also be very loud. Just imagine up to 28 students at a time moving, singing, and playing instruments. It's a good kind of loud but it is LOUD! It is hard for students to hear me over the music we are making and it is very frustrating for all of us to have to stop the lesson for me to make a comment, suggestion, fix something, etc. If only the students could hear me over the music without having to stop. They can with your help! Our current PA system died last week after 9 years of constant use. We need a replacement system for more music making!
With this personal size PA system I can use my normal voice and students will be able to hear me.
Singing and talking very loudly for six hours a day is harmful to my voice. Stopping the music making to address needs is frustrating to students and takes precious time away from our instruction. With this new pa system we can have our cake and eat it too! I will also be able to make great strides with my special education students with the wireless microphone. Many of these students are either nonverbal or have extremely limited speech. I would love to help them become more vocal and start using more speech.
Your donation will help over 500 students to have a better music education this year. This pa system will be used over and over to impact thousands of students over the years to come. Thank you for supporting music education in public .
