Building The Foundation: Startup Classroom Supplies

The Description

After completing Teach for America’s - 2018 Delta Institute I will be responsible for my very own classroom! I can't wait to decorate and meet my students and their families. One of the biggest hurdles that students in high need schools face is a lack of the necessary materials that are needed daily. It makes it infinitely more difficult for students to take part in activities and classwork when they do not have basic supplies.

To get the year started off right, I will use the funds that I raise to purchase the startup supplies needed to welcome my students to a classroom that is clean and stocked full with materials. This will allow me to provide the required supplies to students that otherwise would not have them. I will also purchase copy paper to ensure that I can provide my students with high quality learning materials, whether that is exit tickets, independent activities, or homework. Thank you so much in advance for supporting me and my students at the beginning of this exciting journey.

Every dollar I receive will be put towards classroom supplies so anything you can contribute really will make a difference for my first year. I want to make a great impression and a lasting impact on my first group of students and letting them know that they have a community that supports them both near and far will definitely get us on the right track. Here is a complete list of the materials that your generous investment will help provide for the students of my very first classroom:

Back Up Plan

If I do not meet my goal, I will purchase as many materials as possible. I will prioritize the materials that are most essential to students (pencils, paper, etc.) as they are the most important to ensuring that students can participate in daily lessons.

I hope all your students "stop, collaborate, and listen!"

About the Creator

I am excited to be a part of Teach for America Mississippi and join the movement to eliminate educational inequity in the United States and provide all students with a quality education. I am fortunate to have been given this opportunity to teach and am looking forward to the challenge, but I've got a huge task ahead of me in starting a classroom from scratch in an underfunded school district. If you could help my class out monetarily in any capacity at all, both my students and I would greatly appreciate it.
