I teach second grade in a self-contained classroom. The majority of students come from low socio-economic backgrounds.
Classroom supplies and resources are limited. Monies that were allotted for supplies were spent early on in the school year for materials that were considered a higher priority.
My classroom needs a good electric pencil sharpener in order to eliminate or minimize the time spent on an old hand cranked "noise maker."
Your help will enable my students to maximize the time spent on meaningful learning experiences as 1 student, or myself, will be able to sharpen numerous pencils (kept in baskets) prior to or after school, thus reducing the need to interrupt class instruction.
