Arabic Textbook Classroom Set!

I just got hired as the new Arabic teacher at Boston Latin Academy. I'm so excited! This is my dream job, apart from being a professional paddle boarder/skydiver/para-glider in the mountains of Switzerland.

Apart from learning one of the most spoken languages in the world, learning Arabic helps students learn how English works at the same time! It is incredibly beneficial academically.

The catch is that the school and district cannot provide textbooks. We. Need. Textbooks. So my proposal is this: For $1500, I can purchase a classroom set (35 copies) of Alif Baa: Introduction to Arabic Letters and Sounds, as well as 5 English-Arabic dictionaries, 3 supplemental instructional workbooks, and 5 instructional posters.

Textbooks are mofo expensive, so this is why I'm asking you for help. If I reach my goal by September 11, 2013, your donation will be accepted. If I don't reach the goal, then no money will be deducted from you.

A huge thank you in advance.
