Ms. Finley from Charleston SC is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Title I & THRIVING

My students need everyday classroom supplies that my school and personal budget just will not allow. Every child should have craft and media supplies when they arrive at school. Please help my students receive them!

My Students

My students are my favorite people! They come to their neighborhood, public Title I school eager to learn and grow. School is where much of my students' needs are met. They eat breakfast and lunch here. Almost 100% of my students come from low income families of generational poverty. They are not, however, lacking when it comes to creativity, eagerness to learn, and hunger for knowledge. I want my classroom to have exactly what they need to learn and grow creatively - just as any other students would in a more affluent school.

I strive everyday to meet ALL of my students' needs: social, emotional, and educational!

Please help today!

My Project

I teach at a Title I school with very little funds for "extras."

In my mind, access to craft supplies like construction paper and pencil boxes should not be considered "extras"!

I use construction paper at the beginning of the year to do student-created self portraits. In the winter we create arctic animal scenes. In the spring we learn about maps and create maps of our school and our city. I need storage for these supplies as well.

Our school is extremely fortunate to have iPads for each child in the classroom. My students, however, and usually unable to provide headphones of their own. In order to make the most of this technology, I would love to be able to provide them each with a set of headphones!
