Spruce up our supplies and learning centers. September 2019 will be my 16th year teaching, a lot of my supplies I have had since I began my career and are now worn out. I am looking to freshen up my classroom for my new students this coming fall with supplies and centers that will allow me to teach in small group centers to better meet the individual needs of my students.
I teach at a Title 1 school with about 500 students.
The majority of my students are African America, or Latino; many of whom reside in temporary housing facilities near our school. Over 100 students have special needs and 98% of our students are eligible for free lunch. Despite these odds and challenging circumstances, our students come to school each day and are eager to learn.
Since so many of the families in my class are financially struggling, the basic school supplies that they need to learn they are unable to provide. I am asking for your help to please consider donating to my project so my students can have a fresh start this September.

The materials needed will help to improve and increase student attention and focus.
The learning centers will enable my students to learn in small groups in a fun and interactive way and will allow me to also work in small groups in order to meet the diverse learning needs of my class.
Many of my students families are unable to provide their basic supplies needed to learn each day (such as pencils and notebooks). Every student wants to feel like they are starting off new.
Your donation will ultimately help to increase student academic achievement.
