Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a second-grade teacher in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. As a second-year New York City Teaching Fellow, I lack some of the resources needed to make my classroom a healthy and nurturing environment. One of the resources that my classroom, as well as the school, lacks is a laminating machine. A laminating machine would help me to preserve charts that are needed every year. It would also be used to help publish my students' writing. Moreover, many of our student- and teacher-made math games could be used year after year if preserved properly. The lack of a laminator prevents the games from being reused; therefore, too much of our instruction time is spent remaking games and materials. Our class would greatly appreciate your help with the purchasing of a laminating machine and supplies to help us preserve our work and classroom materials for the future.
