Ms. Melissa from Brooklyn NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Imagine being able to have supplies that you need on the very first day of school!

I will be teaching a new second grade class in Brooklyn starting in September.

My students in previous years have enjoyed our sock monkey collection, learning about famous artists, studying New York City history, dancing, reading, and writing stories!

My Project

I would love for my students to be able to start school in September with pencil cases full of pencils, erasers and flair pens. Often kids don't come in on the first day of school with the supplies that they need. Instead of waiting for supplies to trickle in, I would love for my students to be able to have pencil cases on the first day of school! We will use flair pens on the first day of school to write a personal narrative story!

Your donation will ensure that my students will be able to start writing right away!

You will help them have the supplies that they need in order to be successful students! Please consider helping my students!
