Ms. Rathel from Douglasville GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.


My students need books to help reinforce the concepts we learn in class. By having hands on manipulatives, like gear clocks and problem soving cards, the students will develop a better understanding of each concept.

My Students

"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." Help me light the fire in my students' lives!

I have a wonderful class of students who enjoy experiencing new opportunities!

They love to have new experiences, and perform well when literature is integrated into lessons. They are kinesthetic learners, and need manipulatives to fully understand concepts.

My Project

I have asked for books for my students to read. By providing students with books that capture their attention, you can inspire them to develop a passion for reading. I have also asked for math books, and manipulatives to help reinforce concepts. These are essential to meet the learning style of my students.

This is an important project because it will help change the lives of students!

You can help them become successful! You never know where your influence stops, and who you can influence!
