Mrs. Tulip from Detroit MI is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Supplies

My students need a classroom pencil sharpener, construction paper, and hygiene products such as hand sanitizer, facial tissue and paper towels.

My Students

Sometimes the number of hours a teacher works each week has more digits in it than her paycheck! I've spent countless hours and dollars on my classroom and could still use some help!

My students are amazing.

They come to school every day ready to learn. We explore the universe together during science and manipulate numbers to make sense in math. The time I spend with my classes are packed full of learning, hands-on instruction, and collaboration. My students face many challenges. 90% of the student body at my large urban school qualifies for free or reduced lunch. Many of the parents that I work with spend their days at work just so they can provide the essentials for their families. It is too much of a financial burden to ask either the parents or the urban school district to provide the supplies I am requesting for this project.

My Project

I love when students are able to display work they are proud of. Construction paper would help considerably in my classroom because students will be able to use colors to express who they are as they display their fantastic work. In addition, the hygiene products I am requesting will help my students. Instead of having to go to the bathroom for tissue we will be able to have some in our classroom. We are focused on learning and benefit from as from disruptions as possible.

You're reading this because you obviously care about making a difference and supporting learning in classrooms across America.

While some schools have everything they need, others are full of hard working teachers with tons of creativity to make up for the resources they lack. By funding this project, I will be able to spend more time creatively thinking about the best way to teach my students instead of when I can send them to the bathroom.
