Ms. Martin from Milwaukee WI is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Air Conditioner & Whiteboards

My students need an air conditioner to make the learning environment more comfortable. We are a year round school and it is much easier for them to focus on their education if they aren't hot. We also need whiteboards.

My Students

My students are dedicated and curious learners. They are working hard towards their future goals of getting into a good high school and then going on to college. They have working to develop the confidence in their abilities and the motivation to keep pushing themselves forward.

A number of my students come from the recently famous zip code in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

This zip code is the most impoverished in the nation. As a school we face many challenges in ensuring that supplies are readily accessible for our students. I am looking to help to provide my students with the materials to make their learning environment more comfortable and conducive to their learning.

My Project

The air conditioner will help the air quality in the classroom. Many of the students suffer from asthma and the heat makes it difficult to breath. It is also extremely difficult for the students to focus if they are constantly hot and uncomfortable.

In an effort to conserve paper and make our school more environmentally friendly, the whiteboards allow frequent practice without wasting paper.

We are working to help our students become more aware of the need to truly protect the Earth and it's resources. Providing the students with reusable materials helps students see the need for limiting the amount of trash produced daily. The whiteboards will help the students to master the Common Core State Standard of graphing in math. This will allow students the ability to master the skill of graphing with frequent and independent practice.
