Mrs. Willison from Orange TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

There (Should) Be a Place For Everything!

My students need a place to hang their backpacks! We will be moving into portable buildings soon, and they will contain no furniture! I have requested two 10 sectioned furniture pieces to keep us organized!

My Students

I am a 3rd grade teacher of Math and Science in a small community near Orange, Texas. Our community was devastated by the impact of Hurricane Harvey. Our home school is currently down to the studs, and we have portable buildings in place for our students to move into at any time. Most of our students have been relocated and housed due to extensive flooding in their homes. Most are living with relatives, friends, or in small campers in their yards while the clean up and rehabilitation happens.

We are currently on our district's Junior High campus, which has concrete floors and half plastic walls due to flooding.

Our students have fought hard to overcome the tragedies they have faced this year, all while doing so with a smile. They have come out on the other side braver and stronger!

My Project

Our students will be FINALLY moving into portable buildings in a few weeks, and that means that we will have a small amount of storage! We will be starting from scratch AGAIN, and I want to try to create the most functional and safe environment for my students. After Harvey took everything from my students and our campus, I want to try to bring as much "normalcy" as I can. By adding more storage space and utilizing our new buildings as best I can, I will be creating a comforting and safe environment for my students to be able to engage and learn to the best of their abilities!
