BACK TO SCHOOL BASICS: I'm a second grade teacher in Texas who's students need your help!

These particular students' families aren't always able to provide the necessary materials needed for the school year. I would like for them not to stress over the what they do not have and rather focus their energy into learning!

To begin the year our classroom will need the basics such as pencils, erasers, paper, etc. These will enable us to have the proper materials for those in need.

With your help we could begin our year with a head start and focus on our learning! Help make a difference in our community. Help get my student's minds off worries and focus on learning!
