Ms. Curran from Bronx NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

School Supplies

My students need as well as myself, as a first year teacher, supplies to get through the year. Label maker and lamination machine are the most expensive.

My Students

This year I will be teaching an 8th grade ELA class in the Bronx! I am so blessed and excited to be on this journey with these children. However, they still need a lot of supplies and some of what I have asked will also help me give them a better education!

As a first year teacher, it is a little difficult for me financially to give my kids whatever it is they need this coming school year.

I would appreciate any help for a brighter future! Thank you.

My Project

This year, I plan on doing many projects with the kids. I have asked for scissors, glue sticks and pencils. Which are some of the necessities that we will need throughout the year. As well as, a laminating machine which I will use throughout the year in the classroom to laminate the students work. Also, some general anti germ supplies because you can never have enough in the classroom once flu season rolls around.

The only way we can achieve student success is to provide them with the tools and resources they need to succeed.

As an educator, my job is to give them exactly that!
