Ms. Gallegos from Dallas TX is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I Believe Our Children Are Our Future

My students need watercolor paint boxes, liquid watercolors, color pencils, paintbrushes, crayons and drawing paper because I have a budget of approximately $1.30 per child per year and my students deseve more to truly offer them an examplary elementary education.

My Students

My students are worthy of all an exemplary education has to offer and I need your help to inspire our next generation of engineers, architects, doctors, artists, and innovators of tommorrow. By assisting me with basic school supplies I will have additional resources to motivate and facilitate an environment that sparks a lifelong love of learning and creating. It is an honor to work with this wonderful group of highly motivated, creative, and inspiring students body. They truly inspire me.

My Project

My school is a Title I school. A high percentage of my scholars come from a socio-economic challenging environment which impacts emotional, social, and academic achievement. I need your help to bring a sense of balance and equality to my students academic experience. These basic art supplies I have requested will ensure our school year is filled with creativity, inspiration. I hope for a bright and colorful which will in turn help to develop a strong emotional, social, and cognative foundation for our future leaders of tommorrow. My students are worthy of the best we have to offer.
