Mrs. Araiza from Alamo TX is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Artists at Home

Help me give my students supplies for their end of year sustainable goal projects. They need these supplies to be able to complete their project. The art kits will help them bring their creativity to life!

My Students

I am a fifth-grade dual language teacher at an area that is referred to as "little Mexico" because of the high number of recent immigrants that live there. When I get a new student I always try to make them feel welcomed because as an immigrant myself, I know how hard it can be to not understand a language that is being spoken to you.

These students live with no electricity and some don't even have running water.

They sleep in shacks and small trailer homes. Your donations would be of great help to provide distance learning resources for my students. Most don't have access to electronics at the moment, and I wish I could do something about it.

It is very emotional knowing that it is not the students' fault that they are running away from all the violence in Mexico and that their world is being turned upside down. I have donated clothing items and food for my students before but would like to provide even more for them.

My Project

These materials will benefit my students because most of them lack the supplies at home. These will serve as a great addition to their homes so they can have the necessary things to complete their end of the year projects.

We provided everything in class for them and now that they are stuck at home due to covid-19, not having the necessary supplies will hinder their learning.

Help me have them continue their learning journey for the next couple of weeks. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
