Ms. Beaudoin from Hartford CT is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

My New Classroom!

Help me give my students pencils, paper, sharpeners, motivational posters, and coloring tools for projects in class. I want students to have a way of expressing themselves in their work.

My Students

I’m just starting and the students have been in school since July. The students range from grades 7-10. I want to give the students a unique and welcoming environment. They are working on creative writing, public speaking, and American literature. I hope to give these hardworking students a classroom they are proud to be in. They go to school pretty much year round, and with the high expectations from the school, I want them to feel appreciated in the classroom. Their work is important and many are getting ready to apply for college.

My Project

I am starting in a brand new classroom this year and need to add some color to it. There are few posters on the walls, and it’s a great space, but before the students come back from their 2-week break I want to spruce up the space. I want to create an environment that is memorable and welcoming. My students do not come from a background where they have a lot of money, so I want to have a classroom that is rich in color and happiness. They live in an area that can be financially challenged so I want to supply them with things they need to learn.
