Help a Teacher Out!
One of my Knowles Science Teaching Foundation colleagues, a fellow first year biology teacher, is currently in her first year teaching in an urban school in Seattle. She teaches a diverse, low SES student population with lots of English Language Learners. When the school year began this year, her students (she has a total of 162!) were sitting on the floor because there were no chairs or tables.
Her school has not been able to provide her with any of the basic teaching supplies she needs, so she turned to Donors Choose. She was able to get her first proposal—for Post-Its, pens, colored pencils, and other basics—funded last week, and she is really excited about having these supplies on hand for her kids.
I would love to see the Tumblr community offer some support by heading over to Donors Choose and supporting her two other proposals. She is in need of shelves to help her organize the 162 student binders in her classroom: http://www.donorschoose.org/donors/proposal.html?id=651354.
She teaches Human Body Systems, and her students would benefit tremendously from having access to a quality model. The curriculum her school uses builds lots of activities and lessons around models, but her school has not been able to provide her with any. A quality human torso model would be invaluable in helping her students gain an understanding of physiology: http://www.donorschoose.org/donors/proposal.html?id=651082.
I’m really lucky. My school has more resources than we know what to do with. Not everyone is. Ms. H is a tremendously dedicated, brilliant young biology teacher, and her students deserve to have access to the same supplies my students do. Please take a second and visit her Donors Choose proposals.
I pretty much never post stuff like this, but my mom's classroom could really use help.
My mom is a kindergarten teacher in a high poverty school. She has 26 students that simply love to learn. Unfortunately the school doesn’t have a great budget.
If you guys could just check this out that would be great. Obviously you don’t have to donate anything, but if you can spare something that would be really, really great.
I just wanted to help her spread the word by making use of the social networking sites I know.
Thanks so much! :)
This is unbelievable! Thank you! (DonorsChoose)
Our DonorsChoose project to provide science fiction novels to my cooperating teacher’s 10th-grade English Language Arts classroom in a high-poverty school is already over 50% funded.
We are almost to the finish line - in fewer than EIGHT HOURS.
Help us fully cross it - the kids are going to flip!
Signal boosts, reblobs, a fiver our way - anything counts.
Thank you guys SO MUCH for taking us there already!!!!
Donors Choose Project
Hi, I have a Donors Choose Project for a new carpet in the Library. The old one is falling apart and is responsible for breaking one vacuum!! Luckily, the Board of Directors is matching grants this week, so if you donate, please remember to enter the code, PUMPKIN, when you check out.
Help me reach my Donors Choose goal!!
I’m trying to purchase enough notebooks, glue bottles, scissors, and other materials so that my kids can make interactive science notebooks this year! My students will spend the entire year turning these plain old composition notebooks that you and others help me purchase into interactive science masterpieces full of notes, summaries, poems, drawings, diagrams, lab data, and other creative projects.
Unfortunately, my school has a very limited budget and only gives its teachers $160.00 to purchase all of their supplies each year. I use this money to purchase printer ink and copy paper (that in it self will only last a quarter of the year). So instead of resigning to the ordinary and having my kids read the textbook and take boring notes in their spiral notebooks, I have set up a DONORS CHOOSE project because I want my kids to have something that they are proud of and can take ownership over.
ANY contribution to my project is very much appreciated by me and by my kids (whether they want to admit it or not). All you have to do is go to this link: http://www.donorschoose.org/project/science-notebooking-aiding-in-organizat/821008/ and follow the steps to donate.
It’s super easy and, again, ANY donation matters! THANK YOU in advance for your support!
