Ms. Caione from Everett WA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Off to a Fresh Start

My students need basic supplies such as erasable pens, and motivational books such as Most People, and After the Fall, which tells about how Humpty Dumpty picked himself up after he fell.

My Students

My students have completely changed my life. They inspire me to appreciate what I have, to overcome obstacles, and look at the bright side. I have students of all ages from kindergarten to fifth grade who deal with challenges such as homelessness, gangs, hunger, and violence. School is a happy, safe place to them which is why I work to create the best possible learning environment for each and every child that I come into contact with.

Regardless of their challenges, these students are the most amazing, hopeful, hardworking children that I have ever met.

They motivate me every day to be the best teacher I can be so that I can help them to be the best people possible.

My Project

With this project I am requesting basic supplies such as Post-its, and erasable colorful pens to help engage and motivate my students. This year I'm focusing on making my reading instruction more engaging, and what better way to do that than using colorful post-its and erasable pens in all colors.

I am also requesting motivational, engaging books that I can read aloud to my student to create a community of readers who practice having a growth mindset.

I teach my students that we embrace mistakes, and learn from them, which is the exact theme of After the Fall, the story of Humpty Dumpty after he fell down. I am also requesting books such as Most People, which shows that in a world where we hear about so many bad things happening, most people really are good people. These books and supplies will help start this year off on a positive note, which will increase student learning.
