Ms. Lamas from Westfield MA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Not Your Basic Classroom Supplies

Help me give my students some supplies to revamp the classroom. The steel cart would be very beneficial for the students to organize their binders in, the lights are to illuminate student work on the bulletin board.

My Students

My students are enrolled at the Pathways program through l. WHS. They come from diverse backgrounds and many students may struggle in school or do not feel comfortable with large classroom settings. Therefore they come to Pathways.

We have classroom sizes of about 7, and we are more of a small family rather than a classroom.

All of my students are so full of energy and life. They really enjoy being outdoors. They are always ready to be engaged in the material, especially when the lesson is hands on. My students are passionate about the environment and animals/plants. I love coming into the classroom and being greeted by such balls of sunshine. They inspire me with their constant determination to succeed and their goofy personalities. I love being able to call myself their teacher.

My Project

These materials will help my students stay organized all year. They will provide a clean, tidy space so that they may benefit from less stress. For example the cart will provide a space for students to put their binders which contain all of their notes and classwork. The air freshners will allow for a more pleasant scent so students feel relaxed.

The lights will illuminate the student work posted on the bulletin board, and the cleaning wipes will be used to wipe down desks so germs are decreased.

The foldable bins are for my students binders and the storage cart is to help organize these bins so every class knows where they can go to find their information.
