Ms. Carlson from Bloomingdale GA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

First-Year Teacher Must-Haves for High School

Help me give my students the supplies needed to begin their high school math journey. As a first-year teacher, there are many supplies I need but cannot afford. Especially a laminator and laminating sleeves!

My Project

I will be teaching 9th graders Algebra I. This is my first year of teaching, and I just graduated from college in the spring. Students will be engaging in self-paced lessons that allow them to practice independent learning. Many supplies are needed to help students track their own progress and learn effectively.

Supplies such as the poster number line, staple gun, and paper sorter are vital as they will help me set up my classroom for the first time.

In addition, my students will utilize many critical supplies, such as scissors, glue sticks, and colored pencils, daily to meet their learning goals.
