    My Students

    I am not looking to support just the students in my class but all 339 students at our school. We are a school in a low social economic area and much of our money goes to replacing things, and unfortunately that means that we cannot get the things that we need in order to help our students learn. Many of our students see school as a constant, they know what to expect and they want to learn, despite all of the other things happening in their lives.

    How will this project impact them?

    Many of our students have difficulties learning in a "typical" fashion, there are many underlying factors to their abilities to learn. By encouraging our students to use different tools to help them learn, we have seen an improvement in their confidence in themselves and in how they learn. Gaining access to different, and more, types of manipulatives, and hands on experiences, the teachers at the school can ensure that our students are able to learn, and have access to what they need in order to feel and be successful. The short term would allow our school access to much needed learning tools, which in the long run, will assist our students in their learning by becoming comfortable and familiar with hands on learning experiences that will encourage their learning and learning styles. Your donation would allow our students to be excited to learn and for our teachers to help our students.
