Mrs. Baez from Brooklyn NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I am currently a middle school literacy teacher in a high needs area. My students are English Language Learners and the classroom would benefit from these basic supplies including pencils, paper, a pencil sharpener, markers, etc..

My students have to overcome many language barriers, learn the English language and required school concepts with little or no help from their parents.

Their parents are unable to help them in the educational area due to lack of knowledge and understanding of the English language as well as knowledge of the required school concepts. My students work hard and often support their mothers and fathers by running household errands and watching younger siblings. Unfortunately, another thing that my students have in common is that their families are struggling financially. Within my school the majority of the students qualify for the state's free or reduced meal program. Due to the budget cuts schools are facing, teachers in my school are no longer able to personally give each student the resources they desire. Supplying my students/classroom with these materials would be a small step but it would give us one less obstacle to overcome .

My Project

Students are required to understand the many ideas and concepts from all areas of education in middle school. I love doing hands on activities but my students are 12/13 year old children and have a tendency to lose things. Supplying my classroom with a variety of basic school supplies would be a blessing for our classroom.

With your help our classroom will be ready to start off the new school year off right with these basic, necessary school supplies.

Thank you in advance for any donation and your personally commitment to supporting education.
