Mrs. Orozco from Houston TX is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to Basics

My students need a dry erase board with markers to practice their writing and math skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Remember chalkboards? Well, I still have one! My students are in the beginning stages of writing and need to develop their writing and math skills. The chalkboard leaves them dusty and sneezing after the first five minutes.

My school is located in an economic distressed community.

Most of are students lack the funds to purchase school supplies and backpacks. They are eager to learn and they enjoy being in my classroom. They work really hard with what they have and they take pride in their work.

My Project

My students will use the white board to write and work with magnetic letters. They will be able to use the markers and board in a small groups to create words during language arts and math problems during math time. I won't have to worry about kids sneezing or coughing while they are working.

Your donation will help my kids learn in a cleaner and safer way.

They will be able to write and erase without coughing and sneezing. They will love to use markers and easily wipe away their work!
