Mrs. Porter from Ft Lauderdale FL is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Full Steam Ahead With STEM!

My students need fun fabrics to make pillow cases for their pillows, an easy press heat transfer machine so we can make designs on our cricut and transfer them safely. They also need more vinyl.

My Students

My students are Exceptional! Mostly because they are all special needs students that range in age from 3-22. They attend my amazing school to enjoy the small class sizes and wonderful learning environments. They also get the benefit of a fantastic staff to support them. My students are intellectually disabled and many are on the Autism Spectrum. Many of the pre school students are labeled as Developmentally Delayed. They are all wonderful learners that can do anything you want them to. They are eager to learn and help in their communities. Majority of my students are eligible for free and reduced lunch.

My Project

This STEM project will make a difference in my students learning because my students love to be involved in hands-on projects. This project is functional in their world and making pillows, pillowcases, and then using technology to decorate them is awesome and exciting for my students.

My amazing students are using applied sciences, math, technology, and even some engineering as they calculate measurements and sizes of fabrics and fonts to make their personalized projects come to life.

My students are working and participating in Art class but we are focusing on stem subjects like math to make the most amazing projects.
