Mrs. Z. from Laughlin NV is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Place for Everything and Everything in Its Place

My students need a place in our classroom to keep their learning materials. Right now all they have in the classroom are those little baskets under their desks that don't hold much.

My Students

My students attend a small, rural school that serves grades 4-12. We are part of a very large, urban school district, but because we are so far from the city, we don't have access to a lot of the advantages and services that most of the other schools in our district have.

My classroom is a self-contained special education class with students in grades 7-12 that have multiple and/or more severe disabilities.

My students spend most, if not all, of their day in a special education setting because the general education classroom setting cannot meet their needs. My students have such disabilities as autism, down syndrome, severe and multiple learning disabilities, behavior problems, and emotional disorders. All of my students are at least six grade levels below their age-appropriate peers in literacy skills.

100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch because of the high number of students who qualify based on their family's economic status. Our school provides all school supplies for our students because their families often cannot provide it for them. We have a very transient and diverse population of students.

My Project

This mobile storage cart will give my students a place to put their learning materials without them getting damaged. What we have in the classroom now is just those little metal wire baskets under their chairs. Those don't hold much and often their books and folders fall out and end up on the floor or get crinkled up and damaged by the students' feet. My students will all benefit from having a place to put their items and by learning that they need to put their neatly away. This life skill will help them develop good habits for the future.
