Ms. K from Saint Louis MO is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stocking Ms K's ESOL Classroom

Help me give my students some basic necessities for our classroom. My composition notebooks will be used every time we have class and therefore imperative for my students to have!

My Students

I teach ESOL (English as a Second or Other Language) to children/young ages 14-20 from over 26 different countries. With me, my students are aiming to improve their English. This looks different for all of my students. Some of them have studied English in their home countries for many years, others have just started a year ago.

My school serves mainly students growing up in low socioeconomic households and many times do not have the resources to purchase all of the items required for school.

Therefore, I am usually purchasing items to supplement what they cannot provide.

My Project

The materials that I have requested for this project are things that quickly disappear throughout the year. Notebooks, pencils, sticky notes, maps and hand sanitizer are important to have because, inevitably, I will have new students join and I don't want them to miss out or feel like I cannot provide the resources they need.

Furthermore, most of my students come from a low SES (socioeconomic status) family and cannot afford to buy supplies.

They tend to need assistance, which I'm more than happy to do. However, getting some outside help would be appreciated! If you donate (no matter how big or small) please be sure to name yourself, my students will need a lesson on how to write a thank you card!
