Google announced they will fund every Seattle Public Schools special education classroom that asked for funds and materials through educational non-profit Donors Choose.
Google made their announcement during a surprise presentation at Leschi Elementary School.
Special Ed teacher Jacob Schmitt walked into Leschi’s gymnasium shocked by students and teachers with news he was selected to receive cash and materials for his students and classroom.
Then, after several rounds of applause and a thank you from special guest, Congressman Adam Smith, Schmitt watched representatives from Donors Choose and Google tell the audience of teachers and students they will also be funding all special education classrooms across the district. We caught-up with Jacob right after his surprise.
