Ms. Garcia from Lakewood CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Binders Are Easily Stored and Found!

Help me give my students an area to store their binders. Binders are always tough to store, however, with this binder storage case, we’ll have a specific spot for our binders and become a more organized classroom.

My Students

Eagerness to learn is visible in the eyes of each of my students. Learning is a joy! The moment my students walk into the classroom, they know they are in a safe and comfortable learning environment.

They come to school ready to conquer the world and hop to the moon!

My goal is to create a learning environment free of outside distractions and promote optimal growth. Our class practices AVID strategies and a growth mindset to develop lifelong learners. In addition to this, we want to create cultural awareness, acceptance, and proficiency.

My Project

As an AVID elementary school, organization is a key component. Organization is an area where our students struggle. I am requesting a binder storage case. Each student has a binder we use as a portfolio. Each month we add samples of their work across all academic areas. Binders are tough and bulky to store. I need a specific spot for the binders to be housed all school year long. At the end of the school year, parents are given their child’s portfolio/binder and it’s amazing to see their growth! Housing these binders has been an issue, however, this storage case will beautifully free up space in our classroom.
