I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, and my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever, and very spontaneous.
They like to move, they love to read, and they love a lot of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
I am requesting several reams of Copy Paper and Staples Hardboard Clipboards that will hopefully serve several teachers and several classrooms in our school throughout the year. This isn't the most glamorous item but it is essential for any school. With this donation, you will be helping many teachers and students get the information they need in front of them.
Please help us get some copy paper in our school so that our students do not have to worry about having handouts, readings, and tests printed on paper they can keep.
With this donation, you will be helping many students follow along with the information their teacher is presenting.
