Ms. Joseph from Thibodaux LA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Supplying Success

My students need extra supplies that foster growth within our classroom. I've included items like colored paper, pencils, clipboards, whisper phones, and flexible seating options. These items will help me promote a rich learning environment.

My Students

My students are a diverse bunch. I'm blessed to teach in a low-income/high poverty school. Each day I have the chance to change a life. I dedicate my time to ensuring that my students get the best quality education each day. This means the best quality of me, of their learning environment, and of their learning materials. My students are eager to learn and make their mark on the world. They have big ideas and even bigger hearts. My ultimate goal is to show them how important they are and how much their hard work matters.

My Project

Like most students my kiddos follow the same routine daily. They work for hours on end with very limited breaks. These supplies will help me provide an ever changing environment. I want my students to experience new levels of achievement and learning styles. It's no secret that children are not all made the same, and their day-to-day life should not be either. My students in particular look forward to coming to school, and I want to make their time here the best.

Items like colored paper and flexible seating break up the monotony of things.

We can take the clipboards with us and learn outdoors. The whisper phones are GREAT for small groups and maintaining concentration. Balance balls are being seen in many classrooms as a way to perpetuate good posture and expel extra energy. With these supplies, our options are unlimited. Lots of kids cannot afford the basic supplies needed to excel in school. My plan is to provide everything my students may need and more. Your donation would help a great deal.
