Hooray! This project is fully funded

Over the past five years, I have been a first-grade teacher in NY. This year, however, I started a music program for the lower grades. We are starting from scratch! Our school is a Title One, low-income school. I started teaching here five years ago as a part of Teach For America. I have stayed because I am dedicated to helping this wonderful community.

As the music teacher, I do not have desks and chairs like most teachers. I have an open area with a large circular rug. This works for almost all activities we do, however there are times when I need them to do writing. Often times, I need to test their knowledge of certain notes, musical vocabulary, lyrics, etc. I waste a lot of time passing out clipboards and paper just for a quick answer. If I had individual dry erase boards and markers, it would be much faster and much more convenient!

With individual dry erase boards and markers, the students could quickly be tested on the material. I could ask a question and have them jot down a response right away. Not only could I quiz them more frequently than I do now, but the clean up is nice and easy. This allows me time to set up for the next class, instead of stacking up clipboards, taking off the papers, and trying to get everything back in its place!

Thank you for considering our project. You will ensure that my young students will become a part of the wonderful world of music!
