Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are from a socioeconomically challenged neighborhood. In our district the students receive free breakfast and lunch. These students do not come from the safest most supportive homes.

My students are fourth graders who are experiencing a pivotal point in their lives.

Because education is constantly under attack and our budgets are always being cut, which means that we are barely getting the supplies we need.

I want to empower my students to be the best they can be.

My Project

I am very excited to be teaching STEM this year. With these supplies my students will be able to be successful STEM learners.

These STEM bins will allow my students to work independently on STEM concepts.

With the Time for kids will allow my students to be connected with what technological advances are happening in the world. The map activity book, chart paper, highlighters, post-its, pencil sharpener, and flair pens will allow my students to enhance their note-taking skills. The binder will allow me to keep material organized between my three classes.

These supplies will allow me to integrate all subjects into my classes.
