Ms. James from Fayetteville NC is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Markers in Math

My students need dry erase markers for a interactive classroom experience. I let my students complete their classwork and review on whiteboards. We run into problems when all the markers dry out.

My Students

My students are a wonderful group of young adults who are striving to learn as much as possible each day. They all have hopes and dreams of attending college after graduation. For some, they will be the first in their family to attend college. Each day, we work together using critical-thinking and STEM skills to work toward their goals. My students have to overcome obstacles each day, yet they don't let any of them get them off track. My school consists of a diverse population with 75% of our school consisting of students who receive free and reduced-price lunch and military-affiliated families.

My Project

My goal for the upcoming semester for my classes is to get my students more involved in the learning process. I frequently have my students work out problems on the white boards in order to reinforce their understanding through games, activities, and assessments but, when the markers dry out and become unusable, we run into problems. We need a large supply of dry erase markers to make sure we don't run out of them.

My students need dry erase markers to make learning fun and interactive.

There are several military families that attend our school; however, approximately 75% of our population receives free or reduced-price lunch. The students who enter my class are hard-working and motivated students who just want the opportunity to learn and grow. They have desires and goals that reach beyond the four walls of the classroom that encompass graduating from high school and pursuing a college degree, going into the workforce or a member of the armed forces. It is my goal that they are prepared to enter into these environments when they leave my classroom.
