Ms. Rodriguez from Cape Coral FL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Middle School Rocks!

Help me give my students learn in a classroom that functions. Unfortunately as a teacher I didn’t get some supplies really needed to keep my class moving in a healthy direction. Help me help them! Thank you!

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students need to be challenged and need to see that there is a world beyond theirs.

I would like for them to be technologically inclined. They are at an age that if they are given the right tools like notebooks and foundations the will be great at all the other grades. They are a fun, loving, caring group! We as professionals have made our pockets thin to give them as much as we can but somethings are beyond even our reach.

My Project

My students need a clean healthy environment to do their best learning. Please help me give them that. We are also in need of notebooks for our Civics lessons. Help us create a room of learning. The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a "home." In other words, I know exactly where everything will go. We just need your help in getting everything through our door! The notebooks will go into the empty crates I have for each of my civic classes. The paper, and scissors will be used for our interactive notebooks that will be created everyday.
