Ms. Womer from Allentown PA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

ESL Classroom and ESOL School Needs

Help me give my students folding benches for the computer station, storage squares for books and binders, over the chair organization for their materials, and a sound system for classroom activities and whole school assemblies.

My Students

I am very excited to be working with and serving students who have evacuated Puerto Rico and are safely in the Allentown School District. While the Hurricane Maria hit last year, 290 schools in Puerto Rico are unable to reopen this year. The students at my school are all first-year ESL students, receiving their education in a warm environment completely geared to their language learning and growth.

There is so much hope and excitement in this school- if I have ever seen magic, this is it.

The students are kind and ready to learn! I wish to give them my very best instruction and provide opportunities for fun, valuable lessons.

My Project

The benches will be used for the two computer tables that currently have no chairs. The storage bins will be used for the books, workbooks, and notebooks that currently are placed around the room. Our school is growing, and so are our classrooms! We need more storage for a better functioning classroom.

The over the chair bags will be used by students to immediately access their daily materials, such as pencils, notebooks, and activity books.

The sound system will be used for the entire school, which will grow to 175 students. We currently do not have any loudspeaker system for whole group assemblies or award programs.
