Mrs. Roberts from Greensboro NC is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Math Supplies Build Strong Students!

My students need basic supplies for teaching and learning--pencils, paper, markers, coloring pencils, posters, pencil sharpener, etc.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Welcome to Mrs. R's 7th Grade math class! We are a great bunch of hard-working students. Our middle school is in a struggling neighborhood that lacks many key resources kids need to succeed.

The students at our school have so much to offer and in return I hope that I can offer them the tools they need to be successful in the real world.

We are a fun, energetic, and excited class full of bright minds. All we need is the opportunity to show what we've got!

My Project

My students need the resources to succeed! With basic supplies lacking, like pencils and even a working classroom pencil sharpener, students not only struggle with personal issues, but even with the necessary items to "win" in the classroom.

These students deserve a chance, one that I need help providing them with--enter you!

Your donation helps set up the next generation with the support they desperately need to become the leaders they are.

Basic supplies like paper, pencils, protractors, are all part of what I'm asking for--and will make a world of difference...OPEN UP a world where they can make a difference!
