Ms. Beesley from West Jordan UT is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Language Arts Can Be An Art Class!

My students need classroom supplies like colored pencils, markers, glue sticks, and scissors for various projects we do in my class. I also need a director's chair for when we are reading aloud.

My Students

My students are talented, diverse, goofy, hard-working, and eager to learn. They challenge me everyday to re-examine what I think I know about teenagers and how much they can accomplish. But still, many of my students, for many reasons, currently achieve below grade level.

I want to give my students every opportunity to succeed.

I want to provide them with the tools they need to make big things happen in their lives--for so many of them, those tools have always been out of reach.

In my Language Arts classroom, my students learn about much more than grammar or poetry. They learn skills that will help them navigate the world--and I hope that, when they leave my classroom, they see that the world is wide open to them.

My Project

I am asking for some of my dream art project supplies, including a classroom set of colored pencils and markers, glue sticks, and scissors. I teach Language Arts, and sometimes our focus is on the "arts" part!

Creative projects just aren't as fun (or effective) when students have to pass around one or two sets of supplies.

I'm also having severe pencil sharpener woes right now, and my students take the brunt of it--new sharpeners would make their day!

Lastly, I am asking for some items that would make my teacher life a little easier--some new storage shelves (because teachers collect a lot of papers!) and a director's chair. We do a lot of reading aloud, and this fun chair would allow me to get out from behind my desk as we read. And I think it would make a fun reward for the students--who doesn't like being the director every once in awhile?
