Mr. Eberhart from Atlanta GA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Paper and Pencils for Students in Need

My students need basic supplies. The students at my school perform best when they have traditional supplies in front of them. An electric pencil sharpener, papers, folders and pencils allow them to create wonderful projects that close the academic gap.

My Students

My students come from a diverse background from the metro-Atlanta area. We are a 100% free and reduced lunch school and students are from all parts of the socioeconomic spectrum. All of our students are hard working, they just face barriers and obstacles that have been artificially imposed by poverty. By donating to this project, you are helping a child navigate the complexities of the education system.

My students are hardworking and dedicated to education but lack the resources to reach their full potential.

What they need are physical objects that they can hold in their hands and manipulate. Color and vibrancy are practices that my students respond to. Having supplies brings forth pride in the students as they no longer have to worry about what they don't have and can instead focus on what they have and need to do to be successful.

My Project

Without physical artifacts, students do not know how to create these days. All to often we give students digital media and wish them the best of luck. This forces students to copy and paste from website after website. However, traditional resources such as pencils (with an electric pencil sharpener), folders and paper force students to be creative and hone their academic abilities. By fulfilling the needs of this project, you give a student a chance at greatness. The resources here will help close the academic achievement gap by giving students the resources they need to make mistakes and then correct them. Thank you for giving a child a chance in the metro Atlanta area.
