My Students

Since it is a Title 1 school, many students don't have the same opportunities at home as they do here at school.

All 28 of these kids absolutely love being in the classroom; at the end of the day, they are begging me to stay longer.

This being said, they view school as a privilege and I want to provide them with as many experiences as I can.

I know, wholeheartedly, at all of my students would be so grateful for every single item we were donated and it would be put to good use!

My Project

I am a first year teacher at a Title 1 School, so believe me when I say, these items are NEEDED!

I am extremely passionate about making learning fun and engaging.

To do so, I want to implement an "Escape The Classroom" activity with my kids to practice their math skills. The items required are 6 tool boxes (that can be locked), rulers, paper with colored images, pencils, as well as additional supplies that i have purchased already with my own money. The biggest item on my list is a colored printer. This is essential since my school does not have colored printers and I desperately need one not only for everyday use in my room to provide detailed instruction, but the activity also requires me to print colored images for hints to "Escape the Room".

I have also included everyday essentials on my list such as expo markers, printer paper, and pencils. These are used daily by my kids and they absolutely love the privilege of being able to use materials they don't have at home. Unfortunately, my school does not fund these items and as teachers, it is hard to constantly be providing these items out of pocket.
