Mrs. Calejo Mora from Miami FL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Writing Our Way to Success!

Help me give my students the tools needed for success. Having the necessary classroom supplies such as highlighters, ink, paper, and composition notebooks will prepare our students not only to write but to keep all drafts they compose.

My Students

It is my philosophy that every child can learn and it is up to the teacher to guide them on this journey to success!

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Nelson Mandela

"Research suggests that adult support may be the single most important aspect of how children succeed in school and life" (Marilyn Price-Mitchell Ph.D., Psychology Today). My students are a dynamic and energetic group of middle school children that cannot get enough of reading, writing and creating projects.

My students socioeconomic status ranges from low to high socioeconomic; some of them do not have access to technology and basic school supplies at home such as pens, paper, and pencils. All of my students participate in the International Baccalaureate program at school.

The classroom supplies requested will help our students create and implement a Creative Writing Club for all to join. This club will help students excel, polish their writing and reading skills and build their confidence to help them succeed beyond the classroom.

It is my goal to guide my students and watch them grow to their full potential!

My Project

My creative writing club is a fun and safe place where students can express their ideas, thoughts and dreams all in one place! Students can then choose to either share with the club, the school or publish their piece of writing. "The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say". ~Anaïs Nin

It is my goal to guide my students and watch them grow to their full potential!

. Having the necessary supplies readily available for my students to implement the club and its activities will have a positive impact on their grades, attendance, and attitude. School will have meaning and a clear purpose Moreover, students will have a safe and nurturing environment to write and express their ideas and views free from bias or prejudices.

Lastly, students will learn to take ownership of their learning while having their voice's heard.
