Ms. Ransom from San Pedro CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Year Teacher

My students need organizers, file crates, pencil pouches, a storage cabinet, and file folders for a well organized classroom, that is fun and inviting.

My Students

I just completed my multiple subject credentials. This is my first year teaching. I'm so excited! I am in need of classroom organization materials. I want the classroom to be organized. I also want a classroom that is fun, inviting, and allows students to learn in a peaceful environment. The students have so many distractions, that I want my classroom to be a safe place to learn. Thank you for helping my students and I this year!

My Project

I'm setting up my classroom for the first time. I want to organize my classroom, so that students know where they can get materials and where to turn in their work. I believe having an organized classroom helps with chaos. If you know where everything is, it helps the day run very smoothly. I'm a first year teacher, so I would like to have the organization carts, the file box, and other organization items to help with this. I also would love pencils and pencil bags to help students get started. I'm teaching at a title one school, so students do not bring in school supplies.
