Mr. Willert from Chicago IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sound Up For Success

My students need headphones to use for support while using technology in the classroom. We currently have a limited number of headphones and some are beginning to break down.

My Students

My students come from all different areas of Chicago. They are hard working individuals that care about their success. My students look out for another and inspire their peers to be the best that they can be. Give them a chance to succeed.

I work at a Title 1 school where many of our kids do not have the things that other students in Chicago have.

My students still come every day with a smile on their face and ready to attack the day.

My Project

We are looking for headphones that our students can use while on computers. Many of our students do not have access to personal headphones. This should not be an area of concern for students. This gift would help out 250 freshmen and probably even more students in the building.

Having a class set will help all of our students, by allowing them not to worry about bringing headphones and to easily access the material.

Our students, like all students, deserve the best and should all be given the chance to access content. Please help out and support these wonderful students.
