As a teacher I am responsible for my very own classroom! I engage daily with my students and their families, and it is my responsibility to ensure that my classroom is a welcoming environment for everyone. One of the biggest challenges is making sure that all of my students have the materials they need to participate in class daily. This is especially important at the beginning of the school year, when we set the tone for how important it is for everyone to be a part of our classroom community.

To get the year started off right, I will use the funds that I raise to purchase the supplies needed to welcome my students back to their 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.

PledgeCents allows me to keep whatever I raise, so anything you can contribute really will make a difference in our classroom. As always, I want to make a great impression and a lasting impact on my 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:

Tiggly offers physical manipulatives that interact with literacy, math, and creative thinking learning apps for students. This provides students with opportunity to engage in digital learning through developmentally appropriate technology. The Tiggly Thinker Kit combines one set of Tiggly Words and one set of Tiggly Digits.

Here is the breakdown of our goal of $543.48 for TFANCPT

TFANCPT Back To School Supplies (x1)$500.00
PledgeCents partner product sourcing and logistics$0.00
PledgeCents fulfillment and labor$27.17
WePay payment and processing fee$16.30
Total goal amount$543.48

The amounts calculated above are used to ensure the fundraising goal covers all fees. Actual fees will be calculated and collected on a per transaction basis, therefore total amounts may vary once the fundraiser ends. Calculated fees consist of a 10% sourcing fee, 5% fulfillment & labor fee and 3% processing fee.

If we do not meet our goal...

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.

In 2013, Teach For America and Guilford County Schools initiated a partnership wherein TFA corps members would be placed in some of the district’s highest needs schools. Now in its second year of this partnership, our region has grown to include 51 corps members, many of whom are from or attended college in North Carolina, across 17 schools. As a region, we are committed to serving as a partner and asset in the local movement to reform education, working relentlessly to ensure that all children are given access to opportunities that will unequivocally broaden their life trajectory.
