Ms. Grant from Rio Rancho NM is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books, Bands and Beauty!

Help me give my students be able to read some fresh new books, use some kick bands if they need to get the wiggles out, and have a pump in order to pump up our new chairs!

My Students

Students in New Mexico are bright, eager, and often times are looked down upon. With NM being last in terms of education, students are not always thought of as being able to thrive. However, with the help of an amazing classroom, good books, flexible seating and a teacher who is prepared for anything, they can do nothing but thrive.

My students are the future.

The kids who walk into my class are going to do nothing but jaw-dropping things. They are curious, technologically savvy, and so eager to show what they know!

My Project

These materials will allow my students to read some new books! We will use the kick bands in order to help our bodies move, but our minds will stay focused. We also have some great blow up seats and chairs, that need a way to stay inflated and ready to go when we are!

I also have 2 sets of enthusiastic, engaged and excited kiddos, so that is 48 students total!

That means, double the notebooks! I need an organized place for my students to keep their materials and not spend so much time trying to dig through a bin for their notebooks!
