I would like to purchase new novels for the Reading Counts program. My clasroom library is pretty shabby, as the books have been read dozens of times each! I would also like to purchase prizes and awards for students who have shown improvement and/or outstanding effort. My pencil sharpener and staplers need to be replaced as well. Lastly, I need general classroom supplies such as printer cartridges so that I may continue to send home frequent notes to parents and print certificates of achievement.

A middle school language arts class is designed to teach students language skills: reading comprehension, analysis, research, listening, speaking, writing, etc. Providing computers in the classroom could easily accelerate the process, especially in our age of technology and information, where virtually everything we do is computer oriented. Currently, there are 4 computers in my classroom for student use. With 22-26 students per class, one can easily see the difficulty in providing each student with the best educational process. I would like to have enough computers that the students can work in small groups, each group having a computer. An additional 4 or 5 computers would be ideal.

Student of today's school environments are faced with multitasking learning skill requirements. To achieve a high standard of educational effort for my classroom, supplies are needed to allow students the creativity of exploring the math world around them. Some of the supplies needed are copying paper, ink for printers, pencils, graphing paper, calculators, small white boards with markers, and memory drives for student's computer math homework.

My classroom focuses on teaching students with Aspergers and High Functioning Autism social and communication skills. Not only do we focus on those skills we also work on Community Based Instruction where we go into the community to generalize the skills that are taught in the classroom. Some of the things we do on a day to day basis is role playing, problem solving skills (socially), conversation planning, controlling our emotions, time management, and organizational skills. We could really use the money to help expand our walls in our classroom, not literally but metaphorically. Taking things outside the classroom can be expensive and if the kids can not afford then they are not able to go with the class. As a new teacher, I could really use resources such as Michelle Winner’s books or supplies for our hands on projects. Anything will help and it is always greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking a look at my letter. God Bless!!

My name is Kimberly Stellman. I am a 5th year teacher and I teach 7th and 8th grade Gifted Social Studies classes. My students are hungry to learn and we would love to have some fun civics and American History material. I was hoping to be able to buy some young reader history novels, some replica pieces from history, possibly some replicas of historical documents. My kids love to see, touch, and explore out of other mediums than just the plain text books. They are so eager to learn and I want to uphold my end of the bargain by making this class worth their while. They also love to make and create projects in the classroom so any general supplies are always so helpful. I hope that you can help me do that. I am so thankful for parents and community members that want to participate in the education of these young future leaders.

Our outstanding students love to read. We do many unique projects with novels. The money donated would go to novel sets for the students. After a few years, the novels get worn and duck tape only works for a short time. The students need new, updated novels that they will enjoy and be able to delve into other lands and lives.

I have a wide variety of students who come from different socio-economic levels. When I first started teaching 24 years ago, my students were typically prepared for school with the daily necessities and supplies. I have noticed in the past few years a binder, loose leaf paper, and pencils are a challenge for families. Our schools used to be able to afford protractors, rulers, index cards, construction paper, paint, colored pencils, calculators and more. Budget cuts have completely slashed what used to be available for teachers and students. We find ourselves having fund raisers for the simplest of items. I am given $100 to order supplies for my classroom. My order every year is 3 cases of copy paper at $30 each and any leftover money is spent on loose leaf or graphing paper. Thankfully, along with some generous donations from parents, my family and friends, I am able to help some of my students with binders, paper, and pencils. Another noticeable change in education has been the use of technology. Curriculum's are leaning heavily in the direction of online textbooks and interactive learning. It seems as though all these wonderful tools are available to us, but without the necessary hardware, it's impossible to use all resources. Our school can only afford a certain amount of equipment per grade level. With the influence of social networking on our lives, there's no better way to reach a room full of 11 and 12 year olds than through the versatility of technology. The school where I teach is fortunately equipped with a wireless internet system and we are more than ready for technology. We just don't have the equipment. Our student body share 4 computer labs and roving carts of laptops per grade level. I couldn't imagine my entire class taking advantage of the evolving curriculum on a consistent basis! Our kids want to learn and making math come alive in their "language" with tools they are familiar with will enable all students to feel comfortable within themselves. This will lead to a level of confidence made available to ALL students, no matter their levels of understanding or varying exceptionalities. Creativity woven into lessons will be more meaningful and memorable. With the emphasis placed on math and science in education, it is vital to teach kids how to apply their knowledge and be able to compete in a growing global economy. After all, that's why I teach. To prepare my students to meet their world confidently, creatively, and intelligently. Each of them know I have high expectations of their successes and the 180 days or so they spend in my math class, they know I want their best, no matter what. We certainly appreciate all donations and thank you from all of us who love kids!

Hi! My name is Marta (or Mrs. Brihammar, as my students call me). I teach 8th grade science to students from all walks of life. Some do not have the parental support when it comes to education, and hence, school is not the child’s priority. This is where science comes into play. What an awesome subject to get a child hooked on learning! Science is so interesting, eye-opening and mind boggling. To challenge my students, to make them think, and trying to create a learning environment into which they love to enter, I always try to come up with new hands-on labs that not only challenge the kids to THINK, but labs they enjoy doing. Consumable products to run these labs usually have to be paid out of my own pocket. Any monetary contribution will go directly into my science classroom, and will directly benefit the children! Thank you so, so much! Gratefully Yours, Mrs. Brihammar

I teach sixth grade math and seventh and eighth grade critical thinking. I never seem to have enough pencils, erasers, handheld pencil sharpeners or dry erase markers for my students. By having the supplies available to my students there less instructional time lost, because if they don't have what they need I have it at the ready for them.

Hello, my name is Carol Kirk. I teach 6th grade Math: 2 regular classes, 2 special needs classes, and one Advanced class. My background and area of expertise is working with students who have diverse learning needs in the area of mathematics. I have certification in ESE and ESOL K-12th. I have a passion for helping students with special needs. I believe that all children can thrive in a safe and nurturing environment. I am innovative and creative and have been an ESE presenter at the CSPBC for several years. Throughout my 18 years in the teaching profession, I have had the privilege to work with at-risk children, students with special needs, and ESOL learners. This is where my heart is and where my greatest strengths lie. I have always believed that all children can be successful, and I am committed to making a difference in each child’s life. I thrive in a team environment and believe in the co-teaching model. I am comfortable using technology in the classroom and have designed many hands-on lessons utilizing Smart Board, math software and the internet. I am comfortable with PPT, EXCEL, and Discovery Ed. Since we have to buy our own paper, it makes it very difficult to get other supplies: dry erase markers are a huge need, as will as construction paper and colored copy paper. Many of my students need highlighters and other supplies, like notebooks and paper. I appreciate any and all donations. Thank you and God bless you! Carol Kirk 6th grade Math teacher

My students are the sweetest kids in the world. I teach four different courses. These include a variety of choruses and a music appreciation class. Through these classes, we explore music that is unique to our situation. I do not perform music that they have already heard, or already prefer. My job is to broaden their horizens musically and to make them better singers, as well as better people. We would greatly appreciate anything you could give. $2.00 equals a copy of a song, so your donations are quickly put to use! Thank you for your time and for your donations!

I teach 3 mixed level and 2 advanced classes. I am striving to educate my students about our Government and how it was created and functions. I like to use a variety of media, hands on items and educational games to enrich the learning and success of my students. My goal is to turn what students think is a boring subject into something fun! Students want to know *What's in it for me?* I help them connect their lives to the subject so that they are more vested in their own education.
