My Students

I'm a fourth-grade teacher in a Title One school. I have been teaching for twenty-four years. I teach math to three groups of fourth-graders. I provide services to sixty-eight students each day. Our district has recently restructured and closed a few schools resulting in overcrowding at my present school.

I teach at a Title One school in West Tennessee where one hundred percent of our students receive free breakfast and free lunch.

I provide most of the school supplies for them to use in my class. The students come from low-income families who can't afford their supplies. Many of my students participate in a backpack program that sends food home with them over the weekend. My students have a great deal of potential and I strive for them to be successful everyday.

My Project

My students are eager to learn; however, they don't have many of the basic supplies needed to be successful in school. Each morning I hear multiple times, "I need a pencil, Ms. Bond!" I supply boxes of pencils each month for my students. Unfortunately, my supply has been depleted.

My students need sharpened pencils to enable them to "show what we know!" We need boxes of pencils and two electric pencil sharpeners to speed up the process of sharpening pencils in the morning to prepare for the day.

They also need durable folders to carry to their classes and home to complete their homework assignments.

My student need to focus on learning important skills instead of being disappointed about not having the supplies needed to be successful in school. We need these supplies to practice standard math algorithms daily. Please help make this possible for our class.
