Ms. McKenzie from Tacoma WA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Don't Let Us Hear Cricuts

Help me give my students a Cricut machine so that I can decorate the classroom with inspirational quotes and décor to inspire their learning and inspiration just to be really great kids -- of course they already are.

My Students

I am just starting the year in middle school and in ELL, but my ELL second language students are rock stars. They learn so much in my classroom, from reading, writing and math to how to be a community of learners supporting each other and watching each other grow. I want to inspire them to live their best lives and quest to achieve all that they can in the classroom, in the community and in their lives and I want to give them a caring adult in a supportive classroom.

My Project

I have a collection of really great quotes for the classroom -- those that are really motivational and uplifting.

I want students to know that they are already somebody and with learning, trying and community they can go so far.

I would like to fill my classroom with joy and love for a low income, school and students that could use joy, support and love. I want to be able to put up schedules and routines easily, and bulletin boards to showcase my student's work. This addresses student's social emotional learning and gives inspiration for learning. They can achieve anything.
