Help Inspire Us To Success!

My students need binders, laminating paper and a three hole punch so they can create their own binder for our new curriculum!

My Students

I teach kindergarten and first grade special education in a PLC room. PLC stands for Primary Learning Center, which is a classroom for students with developmental delays. I have 9 students in my classroom who range in their abilities in the areas of math, reading, and writing.

It is my passion to help my students reach their goals and be successful in school.

Any extra help I, as the teacher, can give them in the classroom is crucial to having them succeed not only in Kindergarten and first grade, but in their entire school career.

My Kindergarten students will be moving up to first grade with me and the materials that are funded and brought into our classroom will stay with them next year. Albert Einstein once said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” I want to empower my students and show them how smart they are.

I teach in a school where 100% of the students come from poverty.

My Project

My students do not have the materials they need to be successful in the classroom. My department is giving us a new curriculum but we do not have what we need in order to be successful. We do not have the supplies we need to get us through the school year. My students desperately binders, laminating paper and three hole punch. Our new curriculum is all online and my students need these supplies to help keep them organized all of their papers. The laminating paper will help them create books at their level which they can take home and read with their parents. Many of my students do not have any books, so sending books home with them helps increase their reading levels.

By helping my classroom you will insure my students have a chance to learn and grow.

They will have the necessary materials they need in order to expand their learning. My students are very loving and have a hard time understanding why we do not have the materials we need. It is difficult to teacher without the necessary materials to create a intriguing lesson. I want my students to not only learn what I am teaching, but want to learn! With your help I know we can make this possible!
