Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am an Algebra 2 teacher at Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technical. Our entire school faculty and staff are currently working on curriculum integration with a focus on EOC courses that are essential for students to pass and comprehend. These courses include English, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Biology and Chemistry, among others.
The math department is supplying non-EOC teachers with warm-ups for their classes to reinforce basic math skills. These warm-ups will affect not only the EOC students but the entire student body of over 1,000. Unfortunately, many basic supplies such as transparencies, paper, erasable markers and batteries for calculators are in short supply, or not even available unless the teacher purchases them with their own money.
I spent over $50 dollars of my own this weekend just to provide for this particular function. The supplies that I bought will only last 1 to 2 weeks. However, the math department wants to continue these warm-ups through the end of the year to help the students bring up their scores on the CMS and NC state standardized tests. Please do what you can to help Berry Academy or any school in need of these basic supplies.
Thanks in advance for your help and support.
