Help me give my students tools and necessities like pens, erasers, and whiteboard markers to optimize their classroom efficiency.
My students are some of the sweetest and most deserving that I have ever had. Some live in the homeless shelter. Others live with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and still others come from families where both mom and dad are still together. Thankfully you would never know any of this from observing their eager faces during a science experiment or doing group work to solve math problems.
What I have found to be true is the classroom really can be the great equalizer.
Not everything in life is necessarily equal or fair. The best thing about being a teacher in an inner city classroom is the excitement they feel when they get to put their hands on something and learn.
The materials requested in this project will go directly into my students' hands. So many times I've had students say they couldn't do their homework because they didn't have a pencil, or a pen. In the classroom, their parents can't afford to send them to school with even the barest of necessities. What better way to encourage students to do their work, than to give them what they need to be able to do their job.
While classroom tools may seem like a small thing to some, it is a major thing to students who can't afford them.
In order for students to do their best work, putting the tools in place for them to do their job is essential. I can't think of a more important thing to ask for, for these little ones. They will be so thankful!
