I just set up my first donors choose project!
Donors Choose is a charity that helps teachers in high poverty schools receive supplies that they would otherwise not have access to. To be honest, my classroom and students are so in need of basic supplies that it was quite difficult for me to even pick things out. Do I go with tables, when all of ours are broken and virtually unusable, or try to get things that will help assist them with their learning? I decided to mostly request items that I know my students will love, and that I suffered a real lack of this year, like phonics literacy centers, a number line, and more math/counting and basic skills activities.
Please consider donating to my project or signal boosting it. I don’t post a lot of stuff like this, but it would mean so much to me to know that people are at least considering my little ones and how they suffer so unfairly in a struggling school that allocates the majority of its resources to older students.
Donors Choose said not to put specifics on the request site, but since this is tumblr, I can say that I work in Sandtown, where 99% of my students are on free lunch, and where a huge portion of them are homeless. Not only that, but our MSA and Stanford 10 scores just came back, and our school scored as one of the absolute lowest in the state, in part due to our lack of resources and poor facilities. My students deserve the most welcoming, well-equipped learning environment possible for them, and, since the government, school districts, and school officials will not provide it, we could really use your help.
