I wanted to post a link to my wife's donorschoose project. She is a second year teacher, at a elementary school, in a rural, poverty filled county, here in North Carolina, a large majority of children are barely at, or below grade level, she is looking to acquire a few tablets for her classroom, to broaden her methods of teaching, and teach kids on a level different than that of paper books, pencils, and paper. Any considerations will be greatly appreciated, and she has plans of making a certificate in her class, displaying a list of donors towards her project, thank you for your time!

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to get a 3D Scanner for my classroom. You can read more about the projects and plans I have for it on my donors choose page, but the main reason I need a 3D printer for my classroom is to create a climate of creativity. If you can donate anything it would be much appreciative. Also, if you use the promo code SPARK, Donors Choose will match your donation.

Thank You!

The students I server are a part of a programs that focuses on the needs of students with emotional and social challenges. I am trying to get funding to purchase technology for our students. Between the two programs sharing this technology, there are a total of 10 students in the programs, but many other students also are educated within the classrooms . These students belong to the general education classroom, but are pulled out for academic, social, emotional and other areas they need support.I believe these students are capable of creating futures that will lead to success when given opportunities. They thrive with technology and our school lacks many technology items.

Hi there! I teach art at a high poverty school on the South side of Chicago, and funding for the arts has dramatically dropped on the priority scale. Usually we are able to make art out of anything, but right now we do not even have the most basic art supply: PAPER! I have a donors choose project listed to remedy the problem - please help out if you have the means! Using the promo code SPARK will double your contribution! http://www.donorschoose.org/project/the-alphabet-through-art/1652299/

"Life without Geometry is 'Pointless'"

Please see the link to my Donors Choose website below:

Please pardon the bad pun. I'm a fan of math jokes.

Hi! I work at a high poverty alternative high school in Greenville, SC and I am working very hard to get a set of 10 TI-84 calculators for my math class to use. We really need some because, as you probably remember, most of the higher level math courses require graphing calculators, and my students simply cannot afford one of their own. Having a small classroom set of calculators for my class to share would be a valuable resource for my students.

Thank you for reading this post. If you donate between today and 8/29/15 and enter the code word "SPARK", the donation will be doubled. I, as well as my students, will be very grateful.

Have a great day!

K. Adams

I'm a new junior high school teacher at Florentino Camaquin Integrated School located in a town named Vintar in the province of Ilocos Norte, found somewhere in the northern part of the Philippines. My classroom badly needs a renovation.

Some of windows are broken. The toilet floor drain is clogged. The ceiling is damaged by a leak due to past typhoons that hit the area. The white board needs a replacement. The walls have to be repainted. And there are only a few chairs for the students.

Thank you for the opportunity to share! I had some success with Donors Choose last year during my first year teaching. Currently, I have a project going for new puzzles. My Early Childhood Special Education classroom has puzzles but most are very old, dirty, and missing many pieces. My kiddos get so sad when they get to the end of the puzzle but they can't finish it because of a piece being gone. We were supposed to be able to order some new ones, but two separate break-ins at our school have resulted in all extra money going to replace gone technology. Any little bit helps and my project is up for the INSPIRE code until July 16th! http://www.donorschoose.org/project/is-a-puzzle-still-a-puzzle-without-a...
