Mrs. Walsh from Chicago IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

We Need Technology Help!

Help me give my students new laptops for the upcoming school year. Many laptops were given out during the pandemic and either students have not returned them or they are in no longer working condition.

My Students

Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over ninety percent of our students receiving free lunch. As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are diverse in their academics.

Our school is fully inclusive.

Inclusion in education is an approach to educating students with special educational needs. Under the inclusion model, students with special needs spend most or all of their time with regular education students. Inclusion rejects the use of special schools or classrooms to separate students with disabilities from students without disabilities. With the math and reading centers being at varied levels, all students can work together and feel as if they are all one grade level working on the same activities.

My Project

The middle school students will begin this school year with a new reading and writing curriculum. Both subjects, reading and writing, will be done by using a computer. Some novels will be shipped to the school, however many resources will be digital.

Many computers were given out to students during the pandemic, and many computers have not been returned to the school and those that have are in need of repair.

The students are in need of a solid piece of equipment to work on this year. We have so much catching up to do.
