Mrs. Egan from Las Vegas NV is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Desks of Destiny

My students need new desks. This project will fund 1/6 of the desks needed for my classroom.

  • $696 goal

This project expired on September 7, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is filled with diversity. My students come from many different socioeconomic backgrounds, including English language learners, low-income homes, and few learning experiences outside of their neighborhood.

I have a rambunctious group of 5th graders who are eager to learn math.

They have become magicians, super heroes, artists, engineers, and explorers this year as we navigate through fractions, place value, and problem solving. They love to play games, solve puzzles, and find easier and faster ways to tackle the heavy math. Above all, my students believe themselves to be mathematicians.

My Project

Heavy budget cuts have fallen across our entire district this year, and as a result our school has had to make difficult decisions on how to spend our funding. With your generous donation, these budget cuts will not directly impact my students.

My classroom desks are slowly falling apart.The laminate tops on some of them are peeling off, revealing an uneven surface.

This makes it difficult for my students to complete their work.

The desks I chose for this project have a basket underneath so that my students can easily store and access their textbooks and materials while giving them plenty of room to sit comfortably at them.

With your generous donation to this project, my classroom will have a total of 30 out of 36 desks needed to start the new school year.
