Mrs. Attaryan from Reseda CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

READY for SCHOOL - 2018/2019!

My students need study carrels to be able to concentrate on serious assignments, including research, writing and assessments. They also need basic items, including pencils and a pencil sharpener.

My Students

I am a 4th grade teacher at a title one school located in Reseda, California. Majority of my students are of low socioeconomic background and do not always have the necessary equipment to participate in team sports. It is always exciting to expose students to new things and see their minds and knowledge widen.

It is heartbreaking to see bright and creative students who have the potential to succeed but can not because they can't afford to purchase the needed items.

These bright, hard working 4th graders are eager learners and need equipment to succeed.

My Project

When students first walk into any classroom in the beginning of the academic year they check out what materials are available. Name tags are a must if students need to learn each others' names. The teacher also must remember about 32 students' names. A simple mechanical pencil sharpener is also a must for any classroom. Writing tools, such as pencils are also extremely important for an elementary classroom. Pencils that they will be using to learn how to write several paragraph essays or to solve a real world math problem.

Elementary classrooms are the base for learning.

If the most important tools are missing then learning is no longer interesting and fun.
