Character Development Curriculum
I work in an inner city school with limited funding. Teachers provide their own supplies and often times provide necessities for the students. The students I work with are in a program for students with emotional issues. This curriculum uses a variety of methods to expose students to character traits that we want them to develop. I would love to purchase this curriculum and donate it to the school to be used in both my program and the program for the ASD students. The program uses a variety of modalities to reach students, including videos, articles and guest speakers. I think it would be incredibly beneficial for our students and will help them to see that there are other options available to them. They don't have to continue the cycle. The curriculum has lessons on character traits such as respect, integrity, courage, gratituted, tolerance and many more. The money I am trying to raise will allow me to purchase the curriculum which costs $2,250.00 and a television to show the videos.+ Read More
Hi Everyone - First off, thank you so much for all your help this past weekend gathering supplies for the classrooms that sustained water damage. Thanks to your INCREDIBLE generosity, we are good to go. We did some shuffling around, and the worker bees are coming in to scrub and scour and do those things they do to get us up and running. Our awesome principal Mr. Dichard organized everything and we are set. Now I have one more favor to ask. You all were great about sharing our need, can you please share that we now in good shape thanks to your kindness and generosity! Again, thank you very much you all are amazing!
When I created this gofundme, I felt a little bit guilty. Two massive hurricanes had just struck, and people everywhere were raising money to help those people whose lives were irrevocably changed by natural disaster. Then last week, there was that HORRIBLE shooting in Las Vegas, and immediately pleas went out to raise money for the victims and their families. I feel guilty asking for funding to buy a curriculum on character education for my school. There are so many people in need, but you know what? So are my students. They don't get it. They don't know what it's like to be a good person, or to have good people to care about them. Many of them are caught in a vicious cycle of neglect that will perpetuate on and on unless we can do something to get them to see things can be different - THEY can be different. This curriculum can be the thing that helps to make a difference, but if we can't buy it, they won't benefit from it. Please help to make a difference in the lives of my students.
