Ms. Michale from Kansas City MO is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Theatre, Debate and Forensics... Oh My!

My students need binders for debate and competitive drama competitions. We are also always in need of batteries and medical tape for our microphones for our theatrical performances.

My Students

My students are incredible. They amaze me on a daily basis. My students are what motivate me to work hard and keep doing my job to the best of my ability each and every day. They do not have the same resources that the students in the surrounding neighborhoods have. We do not receive the same kind of funding that most districts receive.

Seeing my students succeed and perform in a production is the most amazing and indescribable feeling.

Debate and Competitive Drama is a very rewarding co-curricular activity and my teams work incredibly hard year-round at these activities. My students receive free breakfast, lunch and an after school meal. They work tremendously hard and put their entire heart and soul into the productions we create each semester.

My Project

These items will help my students throughout the upcoming school year with our productions and also at our debate and forensics tournaments! Many of these items are ones that we end having to buy ourselves. These supplies are the necessary tools we use for every show and tournament that we attend. There are so many supplies needed for our weekend tournaments along with the theatrical performances. Throughout the year these items come up and I think, "I should create a DonorsChoose project for that!" The year gets so crazy busy... and now that it has ended I actually finally have the time to do so! The binders are required for the prose, poetry and POI performers to use for their pieces during tournaments. The batteries are for our wireless microphones that we use during every single production. The medical tape is used to hold the wireless microphones in place during the shows. We use the medical tape to tape the microphones on the actors and actresses faces! And the organizational trays are to help organize the classroom and assist in making the turning in of assignments a lot easier next year .
