Ms. Stringer from Mt Prospect IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Setting Up for Success!

My students need a few resources, such as WhisperPhones, dry erase markers, and ticket holders to help them thrive in reading centers.

My Students

My students come into the classroom every day knowing they are not just students; they are scholars, scientists, mathematicians, authors, historians, teachers, explorers, and adventurers.

My students teach me how to be a better learner and a better educator.

Every morning, I begin the day knowing that I will learn something from them. My students take risks, recognize the joy of being curious and imaginative, and transform learning from a requirement into a passion. Truly, my students are my inspiration!

My Project

My ultimate goal as an educator is to create life-long learners, and I believe I have the knowledge and dedication that a teacher needs to do this! Something I need to help me along this journey, though, is resources!

Your donations will help provide resources for my first students and allow them to thrive in their new classroom!

During our Daily 5 Reading Centers, we use WhisperPhones to listen to ourselves read. We also use ticket holders and dry erase markers for word work. Besides academics, we need a clean and organized classroom. We are a classroom that has flexible seating. Although we don't have traditional desks, we have a lot of space to move around! Thus, we have many things we need to organize so we also use magazine files and caddies daily.

Through your donations, we can get the materials we need to make learning safe, engaging, organized, and fun!
