My Students

"Miss, do you have any markers I can use?" "Do you have any extra index cards?" Without fail, these are some of the most frequently asked questions in my classroom.

At my high-needs school, most students qualify for the free lunch program, meaning they are unable to obtain the most basic school supplies, such as pens and pencils.

My students are a bright, enthusiastic group of individuals who genuinely enjoy learning. It saddens me that they often go without their much-needed school supplies.

My Project

For this proposal, I am requesting classroom basics such as index cards, markers, notebooks, and blank flashcards. The index and flashcards will be used to help students study for their weekly vocabulary quizzes, while the markers and will help them complete their projects. Having these supplies in my classroom will enable me to focus more on instruction and the planned activities, instead of scrounging up supplies for the students. Students will be able to participate in the day's lesson and complete projects without having to worry about having the resources needed.

Without the basic tools used for studying, students are not able to grow as readers, writers, and thinkers.

My students see themselves as scholars, and there is no reason why they should be without the most basic school supplies. With your help, every student will have access to the materials that will give them the education they deserve.
