Mrs. Moyer from Brooklyn NY is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Need A Breath Of Fresh Air!

My students need access to a clean breath of fresh air! We currently have brick work being conducted on our school building. Having a Germ Guardian would help our asthmatic students breathe easier.

My Students

My students are currently in a 12:1:1 classroom servicing 3rd and graders. My children have either an emotional disability, learning disability, speech/ processing issue and even autism and epilepsy. We are located in a Title I and Title 3 school in Brooklyn, N.Y.. Some of my students live in a family shelter/ temporary housing, other children have parents struggling financially and find it difficult to make ends meet at home, let alone help with basic school supplies like notebooks and pencils.

Our parents want the best for their children academically and I feel it is my duty to help expand their world and help them learn in new ways.

Having a disability/ special needs does not make it impossible to learn and grow academically, it just makes it a little harder. It is my job to make it easier for my students and offer them ways to access the curriculum and meet their academic and emotional needs.

My Project

Since the brick work is ongoing, dust is constantly getting into the classroom. Brick dust stays on the safety netting of the building and comes into the room through the windows.

Many of my students suffer from asthma and allergies and the brick dust makes breathing easy hard at times.

We are a small class of 12 nestled in a small classroom. Having an air purifier would also help with keeping the cold and flu epidemics at bay during the fall and winter months when germs can spread like wildfire. The extra filters would ensure that we can use the purifier for years to come.
