My Students

My students need a lot of love, care and support from teachers. Our school is in a poverty stricken area, where many students do not have necessary supplies or tools they need to succeed. Building a warm, safe, inviting classroom community and environment is so important for my students.

My students are kind, caring, and ready to learn.

They are continuing to learn how to best communicate with friends and prevent bullying in our classroom. Classroom community is still something we are continuing to build throughout the year, not just in our class, but school-wide. We also strive to provide differentiated, culturally-responsive instruction, and need more resources to do that.

I hope to receive support from DonorsChoose in order to help my students get necessary supplies, create a sense of community, safety and comfort in my classroom, as well as help my students create long lasting memories to help them connect positively to school. I appreciate your support in helping my students get what they need, learn, and grow.

My Project

My class needs supplies to help them complete assignments in the classroom and at home. Most students in my school typically cannot afford to bring in their own supplies, so often times, teachers spend their own money to ensure that kids have what they need to succeed. We need pencils and notebooks to complete our daily assignments and become stronger writers, dry erase markers to use as an informal assessment to make sure every student understands lessons taught, glue sticks to complete area work to promote literacy, mathematics, science and social studies, and pencil cases to keep our materials neat and organized. These supplies will help start our year out strong!
