Ms. Dixon from Litchfield Park AZ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Year Teacher - Student Resources

My students need a classroom that is organized and has the resources they need to be successful. As a first year teacher I am looking for resources and tools, like storage baskets, magazines, and a pocket chart, for students to use!

My Students

The 2018-2019 school year will be my first year teaching! I moved across the country to join a wonderful district outside of Phoenix, AZ. I will be a part of the 5th grade team teaching 30 students who come from all kinds of backgrounds. One of my main goals as a teacher is to meet the needs of all these students, and given the right tools to do so, I can help these students succeed and develop their interest and curiosities.

My Project

As a first year teacher, I am building my classroom from scratch! I am looking for items to help me build an organized classroom where students can be successful. In order to do so, I am building a classroom library where books will be sorted by genre/grade level in baskets so they are easily accessible. I am also looking to add storage and flexible seating to my classroom.

My overall goal is to create an environment that is organized and comfortable for my students.

I am looking forward to creating my classroom atmosphere! By providing these items towards my classroom, you are helping me create a home for me and my students!
