Help My Classroom! - First Year

$280 of $650 goal

Raised by 8 people in 6 months
As a first year educator, I never imagined how much of your own money goes into making an inclusive and inviting space for your students. I have already spent over $500 of my own money and it still has yet to make a great space for my classroom. Many things are not provided for me. For example: I would love a classroom set of the novel "The Hate U Give" but would need to purchase it myself. I need bookshelves. I need supplies. I even need a desk chair and trash cans. This room was almost a blank space for me.

About my school and experience: I teach English Language Arts at a Title 1 highschool (low income). I am going through an alternate certification program to earn my license meaning I made the conscious decision to go into teaching after having done other careers. I also coach Junior Varsity Cheerleading.

Please help me build my classroom community and provide valuable instruction to the future leaders of this world.

Thank you all for donating! I am going to be closing the campaign in order to open one for my cheerleading squad now. I've been in school for about a month now and feel I have sufficient supplies which is thanks to this campaign - definitely! I look forward to the rest of the school year.

I am so happy that I have had a few donations! I've already been able to use some more private donations for some basic supplies for my classroom. I'm also thankful for the donations that aren't monetary! I've received supplies and even decor items! My classroom won't be perfect on the first day, but it's a work in progress that I can continue to supply for years. Remember - every donation and share counts. Thank you!
