Ms. C. from Santa Rosa CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Thunderhead is Next!

Help me give my students the books they are requesting! We have read the first book in the series, Scythe, and kids love it. Now they are asking for the next two!

My Students

My students need to move! Please help me provide them with opportunities to move appropriately during English class. There are so many ways to aid kids - from flexible seating options to fidgets they can use to keep their hands busy. Take a look at my list to see some ways I can help kids stay focused.

As a teacher in a high poverty/low income school, I am always trying to advocate for my students.

Most speak English as a second language and many come from broken homes or homes filled with multiple families. They are funny, hard-working, respectful, kind, and they want to succeed.

All students' voices deserve to be heard. I am always looking for different ways for kids to feel validated either through the way books they read, the poetry they publish, or the way they learn. There is nothing better than seeing the proud faces of my students when they feel successful.

With the wildfires, our community has experienced this fall and in 2017, some of my students need tools to help them focus.

My Project

Students have been reading Scythe by Neil Shusterman and finishing way ahead of schedule because it's a gripping, compelling novel! The next book in the 3-book series is Thunderhead, and that's even better. Unfortunately, we only have 3 copies of Thunderhead and 1 copy of The Toll (the final book in the series) in our library. Kids are on a wait list and are anxious to get their hands on these books.

Students can't put these books down!

They are reading for PLEASURE, which is every English teacher's dream. Please give my students access to these books, so we can build on their enthusiasm and success.
