Help me give my students basic supplies to meet their educational goals and needs.

My Students

I am very excited to be teaching at a new school this year. I am the K-4th grade ELA and math interventionist in the learning center. Nearly all students come from a low-income family. I have learned that low income does not speak of the quality of students. I have some very intelligent and eager-to-learn students. Across the nation, schools are struggling to provide resources the students need due to state and federal budget cuts. My students deserve the best, and I am their advocate to make sure they get the best. We are making huge strides to improve in all aspects, and the students deserve to have new books, new pieces of technology, and new life experiences to help them succeed in school and life.

My Project

We are in need of replenishing our basic school supplies. I do not have a homeroom, so I do not get a lot of supplies in August for my classroom. We are requesting pencils, pens, tape, glue sticks, scissors, copy paper, post it notes, markers, flair pens, dry-erase markers, a hole punch, staples, and highlighters. These supplies will go to support my not so basic students in their educational journey for the spring semester. These students deserve the best education they can get, but often times are limited by resources. Please consider helping us be basic when it comes to supplies, so we can be beyond basic in May.
