Mrs. Tambornino from Mauston WI is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ending the Embarrassment Gap

My students need tampons and pads. Living in a high poverty area, these simple supplies can make girls' lives so much easier and less stressful.

My Students

"Nothing is impossible, even the word itself says "I'm Possible!" This is a quote that hangs in our classroom and over the years has become our motto. My students know that I will never give up on them, so they aren't allowed to give up on themselves.

Students in the my classroom are students who have not been successful in the traditional classroom setting.

They learn best with hands-on skills and real-world relevance. Students come to class ready to be immersed in learning for their life after high school, not just for a grade. My students haven't always "gotten" school.

Somewhere along the way, they lost their passion for learning. It is my goal to try to rejuvenate that joy and passion. My students work in a competency-based program where they are no longer focused on credits, but instead are showing true proficiency in 60 areas related to high school subjects such as biology, personal finance, and literature. Projects are all hands-on and often include "real world" relevance with field trips or guest speakers. Not all students learn the same, and this program is designed for those students.

My Project

Last year, thanks to some awesome donors, we were able to fully supply our girls bathrooms with hygiene products. So many times this year, girls came up to me and told me what a difference having these products available at all times made in their lives.

Girls no longer had to face the embarrassment and stigma associated with "being a girl" or worry about the ramifications.

Not only that, but girls who previously didn't have any of these products at their homes were able to come to me and get needed items for weekends and breaks.

Because of the overwhelming success of this project last year, we would like to try to offer it again.
