Ms. Maye from El Segundo CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning From Mistakes And Keeping It Clean

Help me give my students the freedom to erase mistakes once the learning has been mastered with erasable pens, to be healthy by having facial tissue in the room and to keep our work areas clean.

My Students

"There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure." Colin Powell.

I work mostly with students who are looking for something a little different than a traditional classroom.

We use a hands-on, minds-on philosophy. We're ready to create the future through trial and error in the safety of our exploratorium - aka our classroom. My students are learning how to navigate life - through personal financial literacy, career planning and learning about the in's and out's of the business world.

My Project

The materials requested will help allow my accounting students to make errors and learn from them, without having to resort to using white out. We still do accounting the old fashioned way with pen and paper -- nothing is harder to see a mistake on line 3 that requires a total redo of everything below.

We also want to learn from our mistakes, to be able to maximize classroom time so we don't have to head to the restroom to blow our noses, and also to keep our classroom cleaner with disinfecting wipes.

We want to make our class time memorable and use it to the fullest.

Ms. Maye
Grades 9-12
