Thank you for supporting my Mighty Murphy Champions! Our school serves the historic neighborhood of Dorchester (Boston). We are proud to be one of the most diverse school districts in the nation. Nearly one in every two students speaks a language other than English at home and our students come from 135 different countries.
My students apply themselves fully to cognitively challenging tasks throughout our extended school days and need encouragement to persevere.
It is my mission and goal to provide the most rigorous, yet absolutely encouraging environment for all of our young scholars. DonorsChoose.org is an essential tool providing resources otherwise unavailable to us.
The 4th graders in Room 208 have grown as writers, but one of their biggest motivations is seeing their work on display for readers. Our classroom is lucky to have a huge bulletin board right outside our classroom door, but we simply do not have ink for the laser printer that was donated to us.
The incredible sense of accomplishment and reward for perseverance in the research and writing process is magnified by printing and displaying their finished products.
The ink cartridges for our printer are extremely costly, much to our disappointment. We are hoping the love and kindness of supporters will help overcome this obstacle in front of the authors.
