Mr. Aleto from Raytown MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Around the Globe with Mr. Aleto

My students need access to better materials for instruction, namely higher-quality, bigger maps for geography lessons; headphones for individualized tech-lessons and audio-visual supplemental instruction; access to primary and secondary sources; and organizational materials for the classroom.

My Students

In my beginnings teaching middle-schoolers in the Raytown School District, I have been blessed with a rambunctious bunch of boys and girls whom I want to spoil with as much knowledge, experiences, and good times as possible. As I enter my fourth year in the education field, I have never met a more eager group of kids who deserve a great, rewarding education. Too often, our young learners do not get the education they need and leave school feeling unfulfilled and unprepared. My job is to make sure that does not happen, and I am determined to make this year the best for these kiddos, as well as myself.

Behind every successful student is a teacher who pushed them further, dusted them off when they fell down, and never gave up the chance to provide a worth-while education.

More and more, schools find themselves in delicate positions, trying to find the funds and resources to serve their students. DonorsChoose will allow me to give my students the best opportunities, experiences, and educational resources that not only make their school day a place to be educated, but a place to have fun while engaging actively in the content.

My Project

The request for these materials comes from both the students and myself. As the instructor, I recognize the necessity for better materials in my classroom: better, bigger maps; organizational materials to keep things in order (folders and storage crates); access to better online resources (TIME Edge); and technology that makes the classroom interactive and lifelike (headphones). Access to these resources and materials will positively impact the instruction and ability to learn within the bounds of this classroom.

High-quality instructional materials are needed to stress the importance of worldly culture, history, and social learning.

I believe that using these materials in my classroom, my students will have a better understanding of the world around them, and their place on it. The materials open doors for all types of learners, from visual learners and auditory learners, to kinesthetic learners. The ability to engage learners in all areas and methods gives students the best chance to fully understand the importance of the world around them. In providing these students and this classroom with these materials, you are helping shape the new age of worldly scholars.
