Mrs. Nazario from Trenton NJ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Simple Supplies that Make a Difference!

Help me give my students book bins that will keep their reading materials organized, a timer that will keep them on task, new markers for creativity and some border for our calm room theme.

My Students

My students' are exceptional, diverse, multicultural and eager to learn. They are from Trenton NJ, which is an inner city high in poverty.

As a teacher in this area, I know that my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom.

Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things enjoyable and provide my students with safe, and meaningful learning experiences. The students are creative and very spontaneous.

They like to read and express themselves through movement. Majority of them are raised in single parent households, by foster parents or immigrant families, and all receive free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I remind them that they are spectacular and to focus and always stay engaged in learning. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experiences during the school day. Being from the same neighborhood, I'm hopeful to inspire them to achieve their goals!

My Project

These simple materials will help my students in a great way. The new book bins will keep our reading material organized and in great condition. The border will be put up to create a space for their work to be displayed. New markers are for my students to continue to explore in creative hands on arts projects. I want to create a classroom where its a home away from home. When they walk into the classroom and see the time, work, donations that were given to them they will understand how much people want them to succeed and how much we believe in the students.
