My classroom impacts 142 students who come in every day to learn about the world around them. We are a very diverse group from America's most diverse areas.
My students have reached a stage in their lives where they take great joy in figuring things out for themselves without needing to go to a teacher.
They have developed a culture of working hard and taking pride in learning and understanding. They want to take ownership of the world around them, especially if it involves technology.
We have reached the midpoint of the school year. I have run out of pencils for my students to use if they come to class without one. But if I did have pencils, it would still require a wrestle with my old pencil sharpener, who is struggling along.
A fresh supply of pencils, along with a new sharpener, will refresh my students' ability to work in class.
Supplies are great, but my students deserve more. I want to help meet other needs by getting some snacks for an incentive project in my classroom. I also need to replenish my supply of bandages.
