TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need study carrels, pencil pouches, erasers, an electric pencil sharpener, and clipboards to create a personal safe space to concentrate and focus on their individual work.
My students are a unique blend of rural and urban. They face common issues that most inner city children encounter, such as parental drug use and imprisonment. Sadly, another layer is tacked on to these children as most are living in a rural area with an extremely low family income. With threats of school closure and little funding for staff and supplies they are at a huge disadvantage all around.
Regardless of their background we strive for our students show GRIT, a distinct combination of passion, resilience, determination, and focus.
With this we hope it will allow them to maintain the discipline and optimism to persevere in their goals even in the face of discomfort, rejection, and a lack of visible progress for years, or even decades.
Equipping these students with the study carrels will give them the opportunity to create their own personal space. Once the space is created they will utilize the pencil packs, with the pencils and erasers, and clipboards to create in their own space.
A place of all their own will allow the students to be comfortable writing, drawing and creating without judgment.
These students lack motivation and imagination. Giving them a safe place without judging eyes will free their imagination. Some of these students don't have a place of their own at home and having a place at school will help them feel pride and ownership of themselves.
When Students are Free to Express themselves, there is no limit to what they can achieve!
