My Students

My students need educational supplies to help enrich their learning experiences.

I am a newer second-grade teacher.

I work with students who do not have a lot. Our school has a 98% poverty rate, and as a teacher, I try to supply them with everything they need to succeed in their learning. Every day my students come to school ready to learn something new. They have very big dreams for their futures, I try to provide all the materials they will need to reach their goals.

This project will help the students have more opportunity to do the things they love so much. This project will provide much-needed classroom materials to enhance our learning experiences. Our room is a great group of second graders!

My Project

With the new school year fast approaching, we are in need of some classroom materials that will enhance our learning experiences. We are in need of new mailboxes and new headphones. These materials are things that we will use every day in the classroom. We need a place to keep our creative classroom work before it goes home and we need headphones to learn as we work on our school-wide intervention program call IReady.

These supplies will be used every day as the students grow and learn together.

With your support, we will have the materials that we might otherwise not have for the school year. Your support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to view our classroom page!
