Ms. Harbison from Houston TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

New Teachers Need Some Lovin' Too :)

Help me give my students a fresh new carpet to provide them with the best learning environment possible. The large bean bag and teacher supplies would be stellar considering all my materials currently are teacher hand-me-downs!

My Students

Students in my classroom range from all sorts of abilities. This year I have had the pleasure of housing and educating students with severe disabilities and students who are gifted. The range is huge and the task is not easy as a first year teacher.

Each and everyone of my kiddos in my room come in from a title one area, most of my students simply looking for a safe and inviting environment where they can excel in their education.

My Project

As a first year teacher it is an expensive and gruesome task to find all the components for that dream classroom you've been planning for years.

The materials I have been given the chance to raise money for will provide my classroom with a fresh new vibe and fabulous learning environment for all students of ALL needs.

I plan on spending little time preaching to my students and majority of time allowing my student to take their skills to the next level with hands-on, student focused learning experiences.

I hope that with the help of some donors I will be able to generate the utmost successful setting for my Kindergarten students.
