Start-Up Supplies for Success!

My students need 95 binders to be organized and keep track of their progress!

My Students

"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest" - Benjamin Franklin.

My students are energetic, and bright individuals that could use 95 binders to motivate them to become more organized and responsible young adults.

By instilling good habits now, they will become more confident students for high school, college, and beyond!

My Project

I want to provide each student with their own binder to provide a place for them to organize their notes, homework, quizzes and other papers. Organization will become a habit for my students, setting them up to be successful in the future. They will be able to see all of their work that they have done for the entire year, and will know how they earn their grades and what they can do to improve.

My students have so much potential; but many of them do not realize this.

They simply do not have access to the tools that will help them reach their goals! By providing a binder for each student to consolidate all of their work, students will be able to keep track of their own progress in math all year long. This will make them more interested and invested in their own education!
