Mrs. Clark from Bloomfield CT is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Don't Hate...Collaborate!

My students need markers and easel pads for their group work so they can display their work and a iClever smart power strip for charging their laptops and phones.

My Students

I teach at a magnet school that has grades 6 through 12. My students come from 36 different towns and even more schools/curricula before they come to us. I teach math in an urban setting.

My goal is to make algebra and geometry as approachable as possible and for my students to feel successful in a subject many of them have struggled with for years.

Many of my students come from low-income or single-income houses where they eat two meals a day at school. I want their math work to make sense, so it doesn't add to the stresses of their lives. I try to infuse fun into their work, but my main goal is to teach them that hard work will get you to your goals.

My Project

Students need to be able to work with their peers, friends and acquaintances to be prepared for what the workplace will be like when they graduate. The chart paper, Post-it Notes and Expo markers make displaying their brainstorming ideas and thoughts easier when presenting their work to the rest of the class.

I am building a cell phone depository with a charging strip for phones during class to help keep them in the moment.

The Over the Door Shoe Organizer and iClever power strip are going to make this possible. I have to get them talking to each other in person and not over a screen to help activate their brains and get them thinking clearly!
