I teach in a low income area in New York. I teach third grade bilingual special education. This is a loving warm school with limited resources.
My class this year is very bright and motivated. They are constantly asking to create projects and display their work around the room. I am trying my best to improvise because there is limited copy paper in the building. This supply is an integral part of teaching as it is used for everyday work. The children are unable to print their work and this discourages them from working to their potential. They feel if no one will see it, then why should they try. We need to make them feel important and show them that we are proud of their work and allow them to feel proud of it as well.
I am really hoping that I am able to get this white copy paper. We have a limited amount of white copy paper in the building and the students are unable to print anything without paper. It is a minimal request that will make a huge difference in the lives of my students. These students have drive and motivation. They are great kids who want to learn and show the school what they are made of. It is hard being in a special education class, other students at this age don't understand and pick on and make fun at them. I want them to be able to hang their work up in the hallways and be proud of who they are. I have requested 15 reams of white copy paper to hopefully get us through the year.
This is an opportunity to help students strive for their best and really come into their own. This small request of copy paper will allow students to have long lasting memories and projects. Please help me provide for them and allow them to flourish academically.
