I have the privilege of teaching over 100 teenagers who surprise me on a daily basis with their commitment to learning, the depth of their thinking, and their desire to make something of themselves. The diversity of their backgrounds contributes to great discussions and allows for us to learn about the many cultures that make up our community. I may not work in the most affluent area; however, I see students overcoming obstacles in their lives on a daily basis, and I wouldn't teach anywhere else.
We need paper! Basic school supplies are not always in the budget and one especially important supply we need is copy paper. I was given $100 for 103 students this year, which is about $1.00 per student. We have to provide our own copy paper, and I ran out a month ago. Sadly, I have no more funds! I use copy paper almost every day for classwork, homework, projects, notes home, bulletin boards, you name it. Most importantly, we use interactive notebooks for learning, and they require a lot of paper. This donation will last me and my students until the end of the year.
