Ms. Rothman from Queens NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We'll Get by with a Little Help From Our Friends

My students need children's books to help build the library we are without.

My Students

My students are faced with many challenges on a daily basis. Not only did Hurricane Sandy destroy their community but their school as well. We have been relocated to another school and were not allowed to reenter our building to get any of our supplies or teaching resources.

My students have limited resources to begin with.

Now that our school has been relocated, there are limited resources once again. My students are motivated and eager to learn. They show up day after day after a 40 minute bus ride to our relocated site.

My Project

By donating to my project, you will be proving my students with the opportunity to grow as readers. Our classroom library will start to become whole again. Students will be able to read from books appropriate to their reading level. Books are such a huge part of a classroom, please help rebuild our library.

Hurricane Sandy has brought such devastation to my students.

Not only was their home life affected but so was their school. Being relocated to a new school, we had to leave behind everything from our classrooms. Please help rebuild our classroom library and help provide my students with the opportunity to succeed.
