Monroe isn't the only school looking for outside help. Tori Campbell, a kindergarten teacher at Washington Elementary, got a new iPad after raising the money on DonorsChoose.org, a website where teachers post requests for classroom supplies or tools and then donors pay for them. The Horace Mann Companies and local agent Colin Ash fully-funded Campbell's project at a total of $517 as part of a campaign to fund projects in high-poverty schools."They're learning beginning sounds, they're learning literacy concepts, math concepts," Campbell said. "I can get science apps. I can get such a vast array to really compliment what I'm already teaching in my core."
