Ms. Ali from Philadelphia PA is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to School Basics

My students need their teacher to have clean and sanitary classroom. I work in a high needs school where sometimes we don't have basic necessities like hand soap or paper towels. These things are crucial.

My Students

I work in an urban school district in Philadelphia. I teach Special Education English to 10th, 11th, and 12th graders. My kids are accustomed to trauma and because of that, certain behaviors tend to trickle into my classroom. The norms tend to be cutting class, coming to class late, wearing headphones, and using phones in class.

What I have noticed about them is that they think they are not worthy of certain things, like going to college.

My project is designed to expose them to college tours so they can see what it's like to go to college and potentially expose them to the idea that they can go to college.

My Project

The materials I requested meet a variety of needs in my school and in my classroom. I teach Special Education and my students are very active and at times need some down time. The request for snacks and a bounce ball will help calm them down so I can get through my lessons. It will help with the fidgeting.

I work in a high needs school where sometimes we don't have access to some supplies, like hand soap or paper towels.

The request for bathroom and cleaning basics are to help keep things clean and sanitary to keep everyone healthy.
