Mrs. Lee from Layton UT is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My kids like to dream big, but unfortunately, they come from lower income families, who do not have the technology to help them out. We want to help out their dreams.

My students are all in special education.

They have different disabilities that make learning difficult for them. They also attend a Title One school, which means a high percentage of the population qualify for free and reduced lunch. They love to use technology, that can increase their learning and ability to function in the real world.

My Project

This iPod will give the students opportunities to listen to music, play on educational apps, and learn how to handle devices that they may run into in the future. This will help them be motivated to learn new things and to be successful as future citizens.

These students are already so far behind, please help me, help them to catch up to their peers.

We can do this by giving them these wonderful opportunities to use technology. It would be awesome to let each of my students use one of these every day.
