Help Fund Ms. Strug's Classroom Library!

Howdy!  As you may know, I have FINALLY gotten my first official job as a teacher! I will be teaching Sixth Grade Language Arts this fall (school starts September 4th!). There is a possibility that my job will be cut after CPS' official enrollment numbers go through on Sept 22 but let's all cross our fingers and hope that doesn't happen!


I'm SO excited to have my own classroom but I need your help!!! I need to start building my classroom library but, as most of you know, I've been in school not working and barely squeaking by (blowing through my savings! taking out new student loans! the occasional bit of freelance writing!) for three years now. 

I'd love to be able to raise enough money to buy a couple Scholastic 6th grade classroom kits (see links below -- I can get both Scholastic Ready to Go kits for $1400) and hopefully enough extra to supplement some additional books they don't offer.


So I've set my goal at $3,000 which would enable me to also do things like buy a bunch of dictionaries -- I will likely have a number of ESL kids in my classroom so I'm hoping to have a few Longman's available!

Any help you can give would be MUCH appreciated!!!  Thanks for supporting me!
