Mrs. Robinson from Orange TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Put Our Books on the Shelf

My students need areas to store their workbooks and textbooks since the flood destroyed our shelving.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We are a small, close-knit community. Many of my students are my neighbors. When the flood destroyed our school, many of our students also were dealing with devastation at their homes. Having some stability at school is vital, especially with so much instability at home.

By being able to have a normal looking classroom, although something seemingly so simple, it will bring a sense of peace to our children.

At a time with so much destruction around them, I want my students to have a place of comfort.

My Project

Since we lost all storage due to the flood, my students need shelves to place their textbooks, workbooks, and binders on. We currently use cardboard boxes to store our books in. As you can see from the picture, it is cluttered and is difficult to access some items.

Although it seems like such an insignificant thing, having a well-organized classroom may help students feel more at ease.

With so many of our students still rebuilding their homes, I want my classroom to feel comfortable and safe for them. A safe, comfortable environment is necessary for learning!

Thank you for your consideration.
