Classroom Supplies to Inspire Great Minds

Help me give my students basic classroom supplies to make sure they have everything they need to succeed this school year.

My Students

My classroom is the second home for 12 amazing little individuals! I teach Special Education and have the privilege of interacting with these 12 different personalities everyday!

My children all come from different challenging circumstances including being homeless, displacement, and abuse.

While being exposed to those challenges and having special needs it sometimes gets difficult for them to cope.

These students rely on me to make their classroom a comforting, safe and inviting place where they can continue to learn and thrive!

My Project

My students and I need basic classroom supplies to ensure that they have all the tools they need to be successful this school year.

Many of my students are homeless and all are diagnosed with a developmental or behavioral disability.

They do not have access to basic household items and their parents often cannot afford to give them the supplies on our class list. This year only one of my students brought supplies and knowing their home lives are less than ideal I cannot pressure their parents to provide items I know they cannot afford.

I have asked for classroom basics such as colored pencils, markers, crayons. I have also asked for a sharpener for the students to use in the classroom and an individual sharpener for each student to keep in their desk. Folders to be used to keep their work, construction paper for art activities, post-it notes that they will use to provide each other feedback on their work, a classroom printer and ink to keep the work available in person.

We would love your help to make sure our class is ready to learn and succeed this year!
