Mrs. Rodriguez from Miami FL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Basics Will Help Us Get Our Work Done

My students need class supplies like binders, posters, and crayons to complete their regular class activities and class projects.

My Students

My students experience difficulties, both academically and socially. Their problems relate to their home situations, financial instability, poor parental involvement and lack of motivation. This transfers negatively to their learning. As a teacher in a low-income/high-poverty school district, I would like my students to experience learning in an enjoyable environment. I want to provide activities where they will be engaged and thrilled and get the chance to change their negative feelings about learning into positive ones.

My students need to believe in themselves.

They need to know that they can be creative thinkers and assets to the community.

My Project

It Is the third week of school and still most of my students don't have the necessary classroom basics to complete assignments and projects. Glue, paper, pencils, crayons are just some of the things they lack and need. Some parents can't afford it, or have other siblings to care for so it is difficult on their part.

It is unfortunate that my students don't have the basic classroom supplies to start this new school year and this makes them feel deprived and unprepared.

I don't want them to worry about whether they will or will not get the things they need to do their work and this is why I am asking for these classroom basics.

It will be nice to know that they don't have to worry anymore about not having supplies. Your help would be greatly appreciated in helping to make my students feel confident and happy to know that they don't have to worry about supplies, but just their work. Please help my kids.
