My students need coat and backpack hooks for the coming school year. I have a flood of 7 new students next year. We also need the cart for our smoothie bar.
They inspire me every day! Every day they come to school and are eager to get to work. They all have their own quirks and teach me something new every day. Every student works significantly below their grade level but works hard every day to learn new skills. They are full of curiosity, energy and incredible potential. We focus on the positive and celebrate every success that our students achieve. Every day we do our best to make sure that our students have the necessary tools to succeed, but it's not easy when you are a teacher. Budget cuts are causing us to get creative with resources. With the help of DonorsChoose, I am able to provide unique and engaging materials to help my students, who experience autism and other communication disorders, discover new and exciting experiences and adventures that they otherwise would not be afforded.
This last year my student successfully opened a smoothie bar for the staff. They made smoothies for the staff and sold them at cost. It was a great learning experience for them to practice their functional skills. They bag the items in class and transport everything in a cooler to the smoothie area. We need a cart for that transport. Last year, we borrowed a cart and had to share it so to have our own cart will help the students build that routine.
We also need coat and backpack hooks to accommodate the 7 new students for next year.
The students need a place to hang their items so that is it out of the way and only utilizes at the end of the day. This helps them build a routine for them when their first arrive at school and when they leave at the end of the day.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
