Ms. Carcione from Brooklyn NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

In Case the Unimaginable Happens...

My students need, sadly, a way to protect themselves in the event an intruder enters our building with the intent to harm them. My cart contains 10 Addalocks that will secure the classroom doors.

My Students

My students are fun-loving, enthusiastic scientists ready to take their learning to new levels! Our population is made up of a diverse group of learners from Brooklyn, NY, including ENL students and special education students.

My goal is to continue multi-modal, project-based learning in my classroom, where my students perform their own scientific research, build models, innovate solutions to the world's most pressing problems, and use their knowledge of coding to enhance their presentations.

My students are some of the most creative young minds I have ever met, and are always ecstatic at the start of any new project I introduce to them. It is most important that my students understand how to apply what they are learning in the classroom to the real world, and so we analyze case studies after each unit (for example, analyzing Hurricane Sandy during our Weather and Atmosphere unit, or The Fukashima meltdown during our Nuclear Power unit) and then conduct research on their own in order to evaluate where our curriculum fits into the real world.

My Project

I wish I did not need this item, but sadly, I now feel I do. It's sad we live in a time that I feel its necessary to purchase Addalocks to secure my classroom against a hostile intruder.

My students are amazing, young, enthusiastic kids that, like all students, deserve the chance to become adults.

They deserve to feel safe in their school. Although our school fosters an amazing sense of community, I believe now that any school, anywhere, is in need of resources like these locks, which are extremely efficient and easy to use. I hope that I will never have to use these items, but I also hope you will help me do all I can to protect my kids in the event the unimaginable happens.
