For the Best Kids!

Help me give my students the supplies they deserve. My students love using fun supplies and many of my students benefit from sensory and fidget supplies.

My Students

My students are the BEST! They are such hard workers and they inspire me to be the best teacher that I can be. I truly enjoy setting up my classroom each year as I get ready for the new school year. There is nothing better than the excitement on my students' faces as they enter my classroom for the year and I take pride in setting up a comfortable, welcoming, and calming classroom that all of my students can enjoy, no matter their age or grade.

My Project

My students need high interest and engaging supplies to support their learning. Unfortunately, each year supplies are reduced due to cuts, making it even harder to get certain supplies, such as thicker crayons and pencils that are easier for beginner students to use.

In order to maximize their engagement, many will benefit from fidgets and flexible seating.

I would love to have enough flexible seating for all of my students, both in my classroom and when they are mainstreamed into other classrooms, and these items will provide me with a great start. Please help my students this school year!
