Mr. Sheehan from New York NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Electric Pencil Sharpeners!

My students need 2 electric pencil sharpeners. We have a generous supply of pencils but only manual sharpeners.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are budding mathematicians. Sadly, we do not have a way to sharpen the pencils I require them to use. This leads to distractions and an inability to complete our work.

My students are an incredible group of 5th graders.

They are very interested in math, reading, writing and the coming election. I encourage them to write but we don't have enough sharpened pencils to do so. My kids attend a Charter School that has turned around in the past few years. Help us continue this growth!

My Project

We need two electric pencil sharpeners to sharpen our pencils. We use our pencils to help us correct, edit and erase our work. Too many times, my students are forced to write in marker or pen. This distraction is preventing my kids from being successful. Please join our fight against the achievement gap and help my students achieve greatness.

Help me to create life long writers and mathematicians.

Please help donate enough so that we can have enough sharpened pencils for all of my students to use. Thank you so very much.
