Mr. Bussey from Hapeville GA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Our scholars are a phenomenal group of kids from highly diverse backgrounds. Our socioeconomic diversity allows us to bring together students from various communities throughout our city to create a unique, collaborative environment. No matter where they come from, our scholars enter class excited and eager to learn. A typical day in our classroom is filled with creativity, passion, and energy!

My students have unlimited potential and believe in their own infinite possibilities.

Often, many of them come to class lacking basic, necessary supplies. They dream helping their families and reaching their full potential. With your help, we can acquire the tools and skills to reach those goals.

My Project

My students will use these materials to bring their reading and classroom gamification to life! The Infinity Gauntlet, the LED Cube, and other items will be used to spark imagination for creative writing and gamification. My students will also have a great time seeing their teacher continue to create engaging lessons with fun costumes and props provided in this project. The books will provide additional background information for me to learn how to implement these materials in the most engaging way!

This project will make a difference because our kids' attention is constantly being pulled in every direction by technology and all of the other distractions the world has to offer today.

These engaging materials will help bring back school as students' number one means of fun and excitement!
