Mrs. Trott from New Bedford MA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

TROTTing Teacher

My Students

Despite the challenges my students face, being students of a high poverty urban district, many of them strive to overcome their challenges every day! It is my job to encourage growth and triumph!

My students are extraordinary!

They are often presented with unfortunate circumstances, out of their control. What they can control is their participation and success in education. For many of my students, having this opportunity for an education is their ticket out of the life they did not ask for, nor they wanted.

I want their education to be fun, meaningful, and exceptional!

My Project

This project will allow for my students to have a seamless, as much as possible, educational experience while in the school building. Having a mobile teacher cart, I will be able to "Trott" from class to class with all of my necessary equipment for my students to have the most beneficial classroom experience. In addition, my students will need to listen to a variety of digital material, most without individual headphones. The bluetooth speaker will allow for my students to be able to listen adequately while in the classroom setting to the necessary material.
