At our Title I school, students rely on the resourcefulness of the school community to seek out tools to help create the most engaging and impactful learning experiences. I have seen firsthand that when my students have the resources they need, to support passionate teaching, they thrive.
My students are curious, brilliant, and compassionate 7th graders who are eager to learn and work together to solve some of the most pressing issues facing our community, from climate change to health inequity.
They are ethnically, culturally, and literally diverse, and are all ready to learn a way to empower our community!
Cleaning supplies (paper towels, tissues, wipes, hand sanitizer, etc) are critical to maintaining a sanitary, healthy, and enjoyable learning environment. However, I did not ask families to contribute these materials at the beginning of the school year, as the mounting supply lists cause serious financial strain and stress for my students' families. With the arrival of cold and flu season, I've struggled to maintain a steady supply of these basic supplies from my own pocket. I far have exceeded my own teachers choice budget ($250), and am in serious need of some external support to ensure my students and I can keep our classroom sanitary and healthy for engaging in science learning! Additionally, teaching and learning science can result in some messy spills, making those paper towels that much more critical.
