Mrs. White from Wauwatosa WI is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Starting the SCHOOL YEAR Off Right

Help me give my students basic supplies to get through the school year! Colored cardstock for projects, different kinds of markers and pens, facial tissue and laminating pouches will be put to great use in our room.

My Students

I work closely with 16-20 middle school students with various needs and unique personalities. I collaborate with 6 other special education teachers and 5 exceptional educational assistants. As a team, we support all students in areas such as academics, social skills, behavior expectations and life skills. We spend time each day teaching appropriate behaviors and expectations for their daily lives, in school and outside of school.

Laughter is always appreciated and encouraged.

Many of our students have sensory issues and benefit from appropriate movement during class time. Being flexible, having high expectations and also having a fun are keys to success in our rooms.

My Project

These classroom supplies will be accessible to over 30 students with various special needs and their 10 teachers. A little help with the extra supplies makes a big difference when planning fun, engaging lessons and projects.

These materials will be used on the daily in the special education classrooms in our diverse middle school.

Our students and teachers will be able to use these tools and materials throughout their school day in their general education classes and other rooms.

Having these materials on hand lightens the stress of teachers buying school supplies out of their own pockets and depending on parents to get extra materials. Thank you for considering supporting our efforts to change the world one mind at a time.
