Mrs. W. from Billings MT is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

This is a life skills classroom that is a special education focus. Our students are bussed from a low income part of town.

Not only is it my first year teaching but the first year this program has been at this school. The problem with developing a new classroom is the lack of funds for all of the students needs. I feel that this is a crucial because they have come to understand the importance of the learning. What we do in this class will be memorable to each individual student as well as myself. I believe seeing what they can accomplish in productive class will empower them to internalized the importance of the learning. Additionally, it may encourage them to pursue careers in what we study. The target population is our 4th and 5th life skills class with 9 students ranging from all types of needs.

The project goal is creating a classroom to assist the students in having a better understanding of the reading and mathematical process as well as the hard work that it takes to produce learning. In the past many of their "school" experiences have not been meaningful. This is a passionate group of students who work very hard. I hope to use this grant to encourage them to continue down this path.

You will make it possible for my students to have a meaningful school experience and empower them in whatever they take on. Because of your donation they will be have learned the tools necessary to be a productive citizen. Thanks for considering my proposal.
