My Students

My students are amazing and really want to learn as much as we are wanting to teach them! My students are around 11 and 12 years old, most are from Latin America, and most receive free lunch. Our school is huge. We have over 1,000 students, and we lack all major resources. We go from Pre-K to 8th grade, with mono- and bilingual classes. Lastly, we are in the fourth largest city in our state. Thank you for reading about my students!

My Project

Hi, I am requesting basic items for my classroom. I hope you are able to help!

We need Post-its for writing important information on papers, such as facts and our ideas.

We also need two staplers. One we need for our daily stapling of items such as papers and so on. We also need one for the wall. We have a plaster wall, and it is hard to get anything on the wall! This would be great. We also need a staple remover, for those days we mess up.

We also need pens, which would be really useful especially in a classroom, because we are always running out.

I am also requesting scissors and glue sticks for our classroom projects!
