My Project

I teach a wonderful group of young people. Often times they don't come to school with the basic supplies they need in order to succeed, things like binder paper, pencils, and erasers.

I want to be able to provide them with these supplies so that they can feel ready to learn and ready for success.

I use the flair pens to give students feedback on their work. Students need to know when they are on the right track or when they have made an error. The pens will help me do that in style!

I am asking for two more TI-84 graphing calculators to complete our class set of 40. This will allow for each student to have his/her own calculator. We use these calculators every day in our lessons. The batteries will keep everything running smoothly.
