My Students

I have been working as a teacher in the Camden, New Jersey school district for 20 plus years teaching sixth, seventh and eighth grade students who are educationally challenged. This school year our school budget has been cut substantially making it difficult to get the supplies and equipment we need for my students. Our students are faced with a number of problems each day. 42% of them live below the poverty level. Coming to school has been a safe, loving and warm environment for them. They have been accustomed to lacking the things at home and because of the budget cuts, once again they are feeling the lack of materials they need at school.

My class is in desperate need of school supplies such as pencils, dry erase markers, tissues, notebooks, etc.

My Project

My class needs basic everyday school supplies. Unfortunately, they do not always have the materials they need to be successful and school supplies are very expensive for most parents. Let's help our families!

My students need erasers, tissues, glue sticks, Lysol wipes, construction paper, cardstock, pencils, composition notebooks, dry erase markers, baby wipes, and a pencil sharpener.

We use our whiteboards and dry erase markers daily to complete our interactive math lessons as well as take notes using pencils and erasers in our organized notebooks. With the school supplies, my students would be able to continue to grow and learn and be productive citizens.
