Helping My Student Stay Organized

My students need basic school supplies like binders, pencils, and paper.

My Students

I am so lucky to teach 8th grade science to over a hundred of the most tenacious and talented students.

They are adaptable, compassionate, ambitious, and hilarious.

I am inspired by their hard work and joyful attitudes.

Almost all of my students qualify for free or reduced lunch, and a large portion of my students are classified as homeless or highly mobile. I strive to provide them access to an outstanding education regardless of their socioeconomic status, but to do this I need your help.

My Project

Many of my families do not have the funds to purchase school supplies for their students. To ensure an equitable classroom for my kiddos, I am hoping to provide my scholars with the necessary school supplies to stay engaged and organized in the classroom.

Binders are a way I can teach my students executive functioning skills that are necessary for success in high school, college, and beyond.

They will learn how to keep their notes, labs, and practice activities organized in a meaningful way. Students will create their own covers for the binders, and section dividers, which will allow students to express creativity and show ownership over their notebooks. These will be laminated for durability.
