Mrs. Childers from Tucker GA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Showtime Starts with the Mic

My students need microphones as well as recording equipment to help them evaluate their performances on stage.

My Students

I am so excited about teaching music to these bright and inquisitive children. The students that I teach are from many different ethnicities and many of them speak English as a second language. This will be my third year teaching at this school, and I have so much that I want to expose the children too.

Last year we started a dance movement club that meets in the morning before school and introduces students to dances of different cultures and countries.

My Project

My school does three performances a year for the students. In the past two years that I've been teaching at this school, we have had many mishaps with equipment breaking down, as well as being missing. I am requesting that you help me fund this project, so that when my students perform on stage, they are well equipped with mics, as well as a recording device to help them evaluate their performances.

Since we incorporate dance in every performance, as well as in choral singing.

We will also need the mics as well, to help students project their beautiful voices, throughout the auditorium.
