My Students

My students come from all walks of life and have extremely varying abilities in math; however, all of them are very eager to learn. They just don't have the resources or the means to get them as many others do.

Many of my students struggle to bring in the basics on a day to day basis and this causes them stress.

When some of these little things are taken care of they are so appreciative.

Help these diverse eager little learns come to class prepared.

My Project

Help me provide some of the basics for his Middle School math students. Many of my students struggle to come to class prepared with a writing utensil. Often, some of the calculators my students use get destroyed and we don't have access to others until the next year. Further, my district runs out of copy paper on occasion and we have to buy our own. I appreciate any help you can give.

The materials that I have ordered will help my 150 students be prepared on a daily basis for the rest of the year.

The pencils are a necessity to complete any work they do. The calculators will help keep the ones currently in my class working while also making sure that there is one for every student. The pencil sharpener will replace the old broken down one that my students currently use. The tissues will provide a comforting necessity that I often run out of as the cold and flu season approaches. The copy paper will help me to make copies for my students when my district runs out as it does every so often.

In short, the materials will make my students and my life a bit easier. They, as well as I, will put the materials to use right away and will be greatly appreciative.
