The whiteboard in my classroom is used daily by myself and the students. Assignments and notes are written on it daily and as I teach I use it often of course. I also love (and they love it too) for the students to come to the board to demonstrate their understanding of various concepts. As a result of all the use of the board, we go through many many markers in the course of the year. Our school gives us only a few markers to start the year and we have to purchase our own the rest of the year or have students bring them in. I would love to have a nice supply of markers for the next school year--black ones are fine, but the kids really love using a variety of colors too. (and the different colors help the kids who are very visual learners). My 6th graders and I would love and appreciate your help in funding this proposal. It seems like a small request and a simple one but it would make a HUGE impact in our class. Most people take it for granted teachers would have markers for the boards but when we run out, we have to purchase more. And each marker unfortunately doesn't last too long. I teach in a junior high school in Denham Springs, Louisiana. Thank you so much for your interest and consideration in helping purchasing several packs of dry erase markers for the school year.
