Ms. Veals from Memphis TN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

STEM-Tastic Books for Students!

Help me give my students the opportunity to learn about different STEM careers. We are a STEM driven school and we don't have enough books to help our students explore the different types of STEM careers.

My Students

There aren't enough adjectives to describe the students that I come in contact with on a daily basis. These students are smart, respectful, and most of all - READY TO LEARN! They love to try new things - hands-on activities and projects. Being a part of STEM school is definitely rewarding, and in order to be great at what you do - you have to be sure that each child has what they need to be GREAT!

Most of our students come from low-income families, and they are bursting with energy.

They need supplies to continue to be great! No child should be denied an opportunity to learn due to not having the basic things needed to foster that learning.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning and trying new things. There are many different strategies that are incorporated on a weekly basis, and they are excited to learn. I am thankful to have such MOTIVATED students in my class. I am a LUCKY teacher to have a great group of kids. I want everything to be available to them when needed, and by creating this project it will give them the boost they need to continue learning!

My Project

Due to the STEM curriculum, we are asked to have a STEM library in our classrooms. Having these materials will help me to build the STEM library as well as make sure that my students can learn about the different STEM careers. I know that these books will be a great asset to my classroom as well as students.

My students love to read during STEM clubs.

Having these books would most definitely be a big deal for us. I am excited about having the STEM library in my class, and later adding more books on different topics in the future. Being able to introduce students to these different STEM careers will be very rewarding.
