Mrs. Kehrer from Trenton IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Smart Board for Smart Kids

My students need an interactive whiteboard to bring us together as a classroom community, while focusing on each student's strengths rather than challenges.

My Students

My Early Childhood Special Education classroom is a room filled with inspiring students that spend hours and hours working on skills that many of us take for granted. Each of these students works to overcome these challenges that hinder them academically, socially, and behaviorally. Despite everything my students face, they still come to school with a smile on their faces ready to learn.

Each of my students has a "label," but that label tells us so little about all of the wonderful things each of them can do, aspire to be, and accomplish.

No matter what set of challenges the students face, our focus is always on the small successes that show individual student growth. The smile that spreads across the face of a student when they experience that success, is the reason I keep coming back day in and day out. My students are truly inspiring!

My Project

Having an interactive whiteboard will enhance our classroom group times and learning experience. Technology is used endlessly throughout our school building. However, it is difficult for all of my students to utilize these same devices. An interactive whiteboard would give my students the opportunity to be just like everyone else. They could independently use the technology to grow and learn.

An interactive whiteboard would allow each and every student an opportunity to gain technology skills, social skills, cognitive skills, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and self-help skills.

The opportunities are truly endless. Creating a love of learning at such a young age is an invaluable gift you can help give each of the students that walk into my classroom door now and in the future.
