Ms. Thomas from Byfield MA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

We Love Math

My students need whiteboard markers to be able to participate in whiteboard activities during the school year. Since my class is math, they also need pencils and erasers to use from September until June.

My Students

I became a teacher to make a difference and mold the minds of young adults. I absolutely love working with my students. They are very hardworking but are often unprepared with the supplies they need.

Working in a socioeconomically diverse school, I am faced with challenges on a day-to-day basis.

Many of the students come from homes where they cannot afford supplies to help make them successful mathematicians. As an educator, and with the love I have for them, I do my best to provide what I can to these kids.

My Project

I truly want my students to feel prepared at the start of the school year. Due to financial hardships, many of them do not have what they need, making them feel insecure, less than, and isolated. Having these materials in my classroom, will aid in my students' success.

With the requested markers and erasers they will be able to participate in activities using their mini-whiteboards.

It is a known fact that whiteboard use motivates students! Also, they need pencils and erasers throughout they year. I never seem to have enough to provide. These pencils will make a difference because they will be prepared for Math! I know they will greatly appreciate your donation and so will I! Thank you!
