Ms. Russell from Washington DC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Can See Clearly Now

My students need an overhead projector and copy paper to keep them on track in science and social studies.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I'm the third through sixth grade social studies and science teacher at a charter school in Washington, D.C. We are a relatively new charter school and I need some basic supplies.

We have one overhead projector for the entire school and it's difficult to share. My students need the overhead for social studies and science as we engage in different experiments and topics.

An overhead projector will allow me to guide the class in experiments and investigations. It will allow me to utilize manipulatives on the overhead, guide experiments, and keep a better eye on my students.

Your help will allow my classes to have a basic necessity and will facilitate learning.
