To whom it may concern, My name is Achor Alfred. I teach a Behavioral Services Class at Sugar Grove Elementary School in Houston, TX. I have nine students, three of which are Hurricane Katrina Evacuees from Louisiana, and all nine students have special needs. Some are Emotionally Disturbed, Mentally Retarded, or have Severe Learning Disabilities that require them to be in my self-contained classroom. Being a self-contained classroom teacher, I teach them everything, Language Arts, Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies. We could really use help with extra manipulatives, workbook materials to coincide with the curriculum, science and reading materials, and bulletin board aides. We could also use your help in providing the basic classroom materials such as pencils, erasers, crayons, markers, 3 ring binders, 2 pocket folders, loose paper, construction paper, glue sticks, scissors, and so on. My students would also benefit greatly from student uniforms, being that most cannot afford them. I can find most of these materials from the catalogs of Education Cyber Store for Special Education, Lakeshore Learning, Southwest Teacher Supplies, Crystals Teacher Supplies, Target, Wal-Mart, and the Uniform Store here in Houston, TX. Thank you in advance for your support in helping me and my students in my classroom. Sincerely, Achor Alfred
