Ms. Hatcher from Lafayette LA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Simple Stuff Can Help So Much

Help me give my students resources and supplies to achieve success in ELA class. I'm trying to instill in these middle schoolers to become responsible, independent learners; hence the need for the wall calendar.

My Students

Young, inquisitive, beautiful spirits. Very different students at STEM school- a great mixture of talents and abilities. All kinds of social groups and intellectual groups. Everyone includes everyone else. They chose to come to this school for various reasons and it’s a supportive positive safe environment for self-expression, learning and creating. We are 6th grade and setting the foundation for the years until they graduate from our school in 12th grade. I’m honored to foster love of learning and fun while learning.

My Project

By helping to purchase the supplies requested, you will be helping to ensure that each child in my class has equal access to supplies that will aid in success in our English class. And your donation will also take the financial burden off this teacher, because I will go into debt paying out of my pocket for classroom supplies and materials. I didn’t ask for classroom fees this year, just a donation of Kleenex, paper towels and hand sanitizer, because I know that all of the various fees can put a strain on a family budget. We are not even halfway through the year and we are out of pencils and chart paper! Thank you for any donation you are so blessed to give!
