My Students

I am proud to call myself a lifelong Brooklynite. I'm even prouder to say that I teach Language Arts and Reading to a terrific group of 8th Graders at a Title I middle school in beautiful Brooklyn, New York. Many of my students face challenges on a daily basis that most of us cannot even dream of, yet they are always looking to the future and for a better life. They know that with hard work and determination, they can make the world a better place.

My Project

Sadly, as I set up my classroom today, I noticed that the crates that my students have used to organize and store their Language Arts portfolios are in SERIOUS disrepair. They are chipped, scratched, and discolored. Some even have gum stuck to the bottoms-EWWW!

I hate the thought of my students placing their new folders full of outstanding work into these sub par containers.

They deserve better!

By providing new storage crates to store their folders in, we will be showing my students that they should value their work because I certainly do! Being organized is a life skill that everyone needs. Help my students start the year off strong with the supplies they need.
