Ms. Clemons from Houston TX is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A Cut Above the Rest

My students need to enhance their learning by having vibrant visuals such as anchor charts that can be created by using a Cricut. This machine will help them arrange math, reading, science and social studies manipulatives.

My Students

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela

Year after year, our classroom has been filled with game changers and future world leaders.

The classroom is comprised of 27 students that are determined to seek education. They make up members of our Title I school where many lack the supplies necessary to thrive academically. They’re taught and live out values such as persist, achieve, honor, and team. These values will help them build a better tomorrow inside and outside of the classroom.

My Project

Visuals help to teach EVERY student. Being able to see vibrant graphics from lessons will allow students to retain reading and math strategies better. These visuals will help students who aren’t proficient in a subject, to students with learning disabilities, to students who are English Language Learners. Supplies around our campus are slim, with one die-cut machine to service 30+ staff members. A Cricut Explore Cutting Machine and accessories will help build a visually enhanced and tactile-rich classroom. This will be yet another way we make sure we are doing everything it takes to reach all of our students. Please help us be able to provide a visual-rich classroom. Thanks in advance!
