Ms. D. from Staten Island NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stocking Up, the Write Way!

Help me give my students pencils, pens, erasers, paper, disinfecting wipes and other supplies they need to be successful without the stigma of not being able to supply their own.

My Students

I currently teach children with a moderate to severe disability in a 12:1:1 setting. The location I work at is housed in a general education high school, which has over three thousand students.

Our classroom has quite a few children with Autism, a few with Intellectual disability, a few who are visually impaired, a few with medical conditions, and a few who have emotional disturbances.

They range in age from 14-16 years old and function cognitively on a Pre-k to 4th grade level.

My Project

These supplies will help ease the financial burden on my low income students' families and give them the tools that they need to be successful. My students' parents don't have the means to give the necessary supplies (pencils, pens, notebooks, folders, erasers, wipes) to my students and I want to make sure my students never have to feel ashamed by not having the supplies they need. We are currently using a writing program that will require lots of paper, erasers, pencils and notebooks to help us stay organized. As a mother of teens and educator of teens, I know the importance of building and maintaining that confidence and not emphasizing the shortfalls that they have no control over. A sanitary, well-stocked classroom will erase some of the social barriers and make them feel less anxious and ready to learn.
