Ms. Martinez-Torres from Kissimmee FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Tech Tools

My students need protective cases and screen protectors for their new class iPads. They also need headphones for the iPads.

My Students

My students are a group of diverse second grade boys and girls at a Title One school in Central Florida. About seventy-five percent of the students come from low-income households. All of the students at this Title One school are on the government free/reduced-price lunch program. We are currently receiving a large influx of students due to Hurricane Maria and my classroom is home to many of those students.

If you came to visit our classroom, you would not only be greeted by twenty warm smiles and kind hearts, but by twenty brains that are ready and eager to learn.

In my classroom, my goal is not just to close the achievement gap for these students. I also aim to equip them with the tools to make our classroom as functional as possible for each and every individual student, the personal characteristics that will prepare them for success. These tools will be ideal for their success.

My Project

Utilizing these iPads in our classroom allows my students to have access to research based programs that will help increase their academic growth. We have 4 iPads in our classroom that do not have cases, screen protectors or headphones.

We need these tools in order to help our classroom function nicely and protect our wonderful equipment.

We utilize these iPads during individual work time and center time. Having these 4 iPads being used at a high volume without headphones is causing a noisy environment which is not allowing all of us to learn at our full potential. These headphones will be ideal for everyone to be able to focus on the task at hand.
