Mrs. Perez from Dallas TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology for All, Learning for All

Help me give my students five Amazon Fire tablets as portable technology so they can listen to books on tape and use modern education apps. Right now, we have ONE bulky desktop that runs ONE program.

My Students

I teach in a neighborhood public school that isn't truly accessed by the neighborhood. The families in homes surrounding our school send their children to charter schools, magnet campuses or private schools elsewhere. My students walk from the low-income apartment housing blocks away, next to the 7-11 where they go grocery shopping. I am their third teacher this school year.

"Ms. New Teacher, will you be our teacher forever?" That's what several of them asked me on my first day in Kindergarten, because it was their 68th day of Kindergarten and they had already been in two other classes.

Because of unexpected growth and a difficult time hiring certified teachers mid-year, my students had a rocky start this school year. Between that and their chaotic lives at home, they are reticent to trust. I'm attempting to change that by growing a relationship with them based on a pattern of stability.

My Project

"Our country’s poorer students get left even further behind as we push deeper into the tech boom," said Liz Riggs, an education equity advocate. Even though so many education apps are free to use, Title 1 schools can't afford the newer technology to run these programs.

Every child in my classroom comes from a low-income family, with limited resources, and their digital illiteracy is shocking.

In a country where so many children toggle between video game consoles, cell phones, and tablets, these Kindergarten students are completely without all of those. In our classroom, we have ONE bulky desktop that runs ONE program from ONE rigid seat.

These Fire tablets would allow me to personalize student learning, access free books on tape from the public library, view the videos our science curriculum recommends showing, and close opportunity gap between my students and their more privileged peers.
