The section of Philadelphia I teach in is a very low-economic area with minimal family involvement. Many have limited resources. However, they make up for that with their personalities and eagerness.
Many of my students come into school without previous education, minimal basic skills, and minimal supplies, but are eager and willing to work hard to learn all they can.
In order for my students to succeed and thrive, we need to have a safe and inviting environment. In order to do this, we need snacks for energy, centers that are exciting, and new, basic everyday materials that are readily available for the classroom and for home.
Please help me to provide my students with school supplies so they are able to successfully learn each day in our classroom. Many of my students are not able to provide their own supplies for class They will not be worried about not having crayons, markers or glue. The students will be so excited about new supplies! This will be very helpful for all of my students. These supplies will give students the confidence to put their best effort into the lessons and assignments. Fresh school supplies will allow my students to continue their learning and their success in the classroom.
