Ms. Hackett from Buffalo NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a clean classroom to learn and succeed in!
I am a teacher of twenty awesome students. Each child comes to our class with a different story to tell.
I teach in an urban school where all of my students receive free breakfast/lunch.
They often come to school without basics: coats, gloves, backpacks, clean clothes, hygiene, etc. I often spend the twenty minutes in the morning just getting my kids ready for the day with their basic needs so that they can focus on school and not worry about hygiene, clothing, etc. They did not come to school with supplies. I provided all of that for them.
Despite all of the struggles my students face at home, when they come to school they're happy and motivated. I often have all of my students present daily because our classroom is their escape. When they come to school, they know they are safe and someone cares about them.
Our classroom is set up in a way where they have leadership roles, partner work, and independent work are done daily, and we are constantly working on our character traits of kindness and empathy.
In our classroom, we do many hands activities that create messes around our classroom. We try our best to maintain our classroom but without vacuums, brooms, and magic erasers the cleanliness of our rooms suffers.
The vacuum and brooms would be used across the classrooms on our floor to create a more clean, suitable, and functional classroom for our students.
Our rooms are often not cleaned when we arrive in our classrooms in the morning and it takes away from our students learning when we have to spend time cleaning. This would enable us to clean our classrooms the day prior and have more learning time spent with our students.
