My Students

Third-grade students love to learn, and I love providing them with as many resources as I possibly can through DonorsChoose.org to enhance their education at our school. I teach two classes of third-grade students. I teach language arts and social studies to my first block, and I teach math and science to my second block. There are forty diverse students total in my classes. Many of these students receive free or reduced-price lunches. I have been teaching for sixteen years. This is my third year to teach third grade.

My Project

Our classroom currently has one mounted whiteboard. This board’s shiny top layer is practically gone because it has been used and cleaned so much by past teachers; therefore, we can not use dry erase markers on it because it is almost impossible to get it off. The board also contains MANY scratches so we only use this space to hang anchor charts. If we receive a new whiteboard, we would be able to use dry erase markers during our lessons too. A whiteboard is a necessity in every classroom so it would be used every day. Thank you in advance for considering my project for funding.
