Mrs. McNamara from Chicago IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Room 308 Basics. Please Help Us Meet Our Classroom Needs.

My students need vital supplies for the classroom. We are in desperate need of ink, dry erase markers and dry erase board cleaner. We also need tape, staples, clipboards and tissues! (Lots and lots of tissues!)

My Students

Within our low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, they come to school each day ready to learn and are truly excited to be there.

My Project

My classroom runs like a well-oiled machine. I have over ninety 4th and 5th graders in and out of my math classes all day long. And with all of those students, we go through supplies like crazy! Honestly, it is just the basics that we run out of by the Spring. We need tape, staples, tissues, dry erase markers, board cleaner and printer ink (you cannot have enough, can you?!) All of these essentials keep our math machine running smoothly and we need your help to get our classroom back in fighting shape. My class and I would be forever grateful for your help!
