Ms. Pauli from Oakland CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Get to the Point... Pencils for 5th Graders!

My students need a bulk order of quality pencils to last us until the end of the year.

My Students

With the amount of vibrant energy that my students bring into the classroom each day they come to school, you may never guess the challenges that my students face both in and out of the classroom. Their courage and persistence inspires me to create a nurturing, academically stimulating and inviting classroom where they can feel comfortable to be themselves and challenged to achieve their goals.

It is my duty as a teacher to provide my students who come from a low-income community an abundance of opportunities for success.

My goal as their teacher is to provide my students with challenging, varied, and relevant academic experiences all year long so that they can find their passion for learning that they can take to middle school and beyond.

My Project

The aim of my project is simple and important....pencils. Every person that walks into my classroom is expected to be ready to learn with all necessary materials. The pencil is the most essential learning material that students will use for...well, everything.

Help me supply my students with quality pencils that will last through the end of the year and beyond.

The current supply of pencils are dwindling and break constantly. A lot of our instructional time is spent managing students that need to visit the pencil sharpener because the led of their pencil falls out. This quality supply of pencils will last all year!
