Mr. Calderon from Fresno CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students storage solutions for classroom organization and safety during the pandemic.
When you think of school, you think of learning. But for my students, school is more than just for learning. It is a safe haven and a place where they can escape the harsh realities from home.
My 12 and 13 year-old students are more than young teenagers.
At home, they are caregivers to siblings, and cooks, and they often play an adult role. They come to school to escape the crimes, drugs, and secondary trauma all around them.
Given this, my desire is to create a classroom environment where all students can feel safe, respected, and valued. I know that our school is located in one of the toughest areas. The neighborhoods aren't safe; they are filled with drugs, gangs, and violence.
However, students show up every day ready to learn because they want to change the trajectory of their future. They want to end the generational curse. I want to be there alongside my students, helping them achieve their goals. I want to provide a haven for my students where they can forget about the chaos around them, even if for just a little while. Together, we can remove barriers and help lift our community!
Amidst the rising cases of positive cases during the pandemic, we are implementing changes to help mitigate the possibility of COVID spreading. When students come to school, we aspire to create a learning environment that is safe and clean. Though we have a district-wide COVID protocol in place, we still have concerns.
Having individual baskets for students to turn in assignments along with individual supply caddies will allow for students to practice social distancing and allow for paper assignments to be left in "quarantined" until they can be collected and graded.
You donation will ensure that students can learn in a safe environment while following district-wide COVID protocols.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
