It has difficulty distinguishing between a roaring grease fire and a steamy shower, which makes it a good thing it can't remember the number to call in an emergency.

Help an Elementary School Move to the Twenty-First Century

Our school is an urban school comprised of approximately 600 students. We are a Title I funded school and 95% of the students we serve are below the poverty line. Sixty percent of our students are Hispanic with Spanish being their first language.

I am a resource teacher and I teach students K-5. My students are taught in the general education classroom, and the majority of them have been identified as having a Specific Learning Disability or some other disability.

DonorsChoose.org makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
