Mrs. Tillman from Memphis TN is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Us Stay Organized in Math

Help me give my students homework folders that won't be destroyed in 6 weeks! We strive to stay organized, but it is a financial burden to our students to replenish supplies after the first quarter.

My Students

I have been teaching in the largest school district in our state for twenty years. Sixteen years of my career have been spent at my current school, where I believe in the students and staff that I work with every day.

I teach in an urban environment where my students are often lacking basic needs such as proper nutrition and emotional support.

I try to be a stable presence in the lives of my students and provide them with not only academic needs but also fundamental needs that they need to succeed in life.

My students are curious and excited 5th graders who love to learn and experience new things. In my math and science classes, the students are eager to learn about the world around them and challenge themselves to do better and go further. They are hands-on learners. I love to bring learning into the classroom in a fun and practical way and make it real for my students.

My Project

My students try hard to stay organized. We start the year with many supplies, which are often donated or provided by our school.

Sadly, our folders are inexpensive and of poor quality, which are destroyed by the 6th week of school!

My students take home their "homework folder" nightly with math homework, help sheets and newsletters filled with ways parents can help them.

We need new, sturdy folders that will last the entire school year. My students would really appreciate a nice, heavy, plastic folder to make it easier to stay organized. They pride themselves on having their homework completed daily, but become frustrated when their "new" folder is falling apart.
