Mr. Jones from Orem UT is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

The Friendliest Place at School

Help me give my students (those who aren't in a cappella choir, or the lead in the musical) the technology to showcase their performing and recording talents.

My Students

I love all my students (those that are shy and need a soft landing spot in the library--and those that are extroverted but sad because they didn't get the starting quarterback position). I make the library a place where all students are recognized and loved.

The library at our school is the hub of our school architecturally, academically, and emotionally.

I love the students who read a book a week, but I also love helping a student who claims never to have read.

I work at a comprehensive high school with students from many diverse backgrounds, but in the library, we seek to serve those underprivileged and need a platform to share and develop skills.

My Project

Historically, high schools reward and recognize only a select few members of the student body--but every student has accomplished something that should be celebrated. OHS has a student population over 1,000, but only 15 sing in the a cappella choir, and only 5 play on the basketball team, and only 1 gets the lead in the school musical.

I try to change this pattern of exclusivity by planning, sponsoring, and running events in the library that prioritize inclusivity.

We promote our Friday Open Mic as the friendliest place to perform--and although the performances aren’t the most polished, everyone gets wild applause. And our monthly juried photo shows allow students to display work that isn’t always perfect, but nonetheless represents the creativity of many students.

More students need to be recognized, and I want to provide better equipment for them to showcase their talents.
