Make Movies Come to Life

My students need a DVD player to enhance the science curriculum.

I am a third grade teacher in an urban school district in New Jersey. I am given $100 for school supplies for next year. I cannot afford to purchase the necessary items to enhance my students education.

My students love to learn! Despite all of the baggage that they come to school with, they are motivated to learn. Their enthusiasm challenges me to be the best teacher I can be for them. It breaks my heart that I do not have access to all of the supplies in the classroom to enhance their educational career.

Each child is gifted but it just takes some longer to open the package. Children learn in different ways. The DVD player will help my visual students learn. I have special education students and this provides an opportunity for them to master a concept that is taught in the classroom.

With your generous help, I will provide better instruction for all students in my room. As a young child, the foundation for success needs to be built now. This foundation will give them the encouragement to be successful in the future.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
