My students attend one of the more ethnically diverse schools in Philadelphia. 100% of our students receive free lunch. 25 percent of the school's population are special needs students. About 20 percent of the student body are English Language Learners. These students speak a multitude of languages including English, Spanish, Portuguese, Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Chinese, and Arabic.
Most of my students are visual learners whom I want to be excited about science, specifically Chemistry.
These supplies will help bring excitement into my classroom by using hands on activities.
My students have a lack of paper provided by the school. A pencil sharpener and expo markers had been bought several times by me, the teacher, but I can no longer afford to buy these supplies as I am paying to work on my Master's Degree in Physics Education.
Please consider funding this project to pay for basic supplies that are not provided to my low income students.
My students try hard in Chemistry but are at a huge disadvantage as funding has evaporated within the school for basic classroom supplies. These students can succeed to be productive contributors to society if they are provided with the appropriate supplies.
