Mr. Gostomski from Charlotte NC is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Our future

Help me give my students the opportunity to learn advanced math by using expo markers in our 360 degree classroom, pencils to help them while working at their seats and activity balls for recess.

My Students

My students are all well behaved, motivated, intelligent, hard working students. They always seem to put forth the best effort and have a zest for learning. The students I have taught at school are also always willing to go above and beyond when it comes to helping their fellow classmates learn to not only understand the answer, but to also understand how and why you get the answer. They also exemplify appropriate conduct both inside the classroom as well as outside.

My Project

Giving the students expo markers and pencils will allow them to work collaboratively around my classroom on the whiteboards that are on each of my walls. In addition the broom and dustpan will hold the kids accountable for making sure that the classroom is clean on a regular basis. The activity balls will give my students an opportunity to enjoy their recess time by staying active and healthy by running around and playing basketball and kickball.

By donating these resources the students will be able to focus on the actual learning of the curriculum not whether or not they are able to come to school with the supplies that are necessary to succeed.
