My Students

My third grade students live in a low-income urban neighborhood in Manhattan. They are smart and creative and need some supplies in order to achieve their highest potential. They are sweet, adorable kids who are very hard-working.

My students carry a lot of weight on their shoulders every day.

Many of them live in neighboring shelters and projects. They need various supplies in order to be successful this school year in third grade. We use supplies daily for learning and to create hands-on, engaging projects.

My Project

I am moving to a new classroom this school year. There are some basic materials and furniture items that I need in order to have another successful year teaching third grade. I am looking forward to moving rooms, but I need to ensure that my students have some urgent supplies in order to achieve their very best.

I will have approximately 30 students this school year, which is more than I have seats for!

I need some new chairs so that all of my students will have a comfortable place to sit. At the moment, I have more students on my roster than I have chairs. I also need a new vacuum cleaner so my students can have a safe and clean place to learn.

These are basic supplies that I really need in order to get my kids started off on the right foot this September. The school year is just around the corner and I am so excited for another great year in third grade!
