My name is Sara LaBelle and I teach bright first graders with lots of potential. Room 15 is a self contained first grade classroom composed of students of varied academic abilities.

I run the MakerSpace at La Escuelita Elementary school in Oakland CA. Once a week I work with each of 16 classes doing projects encourage students to create, build and make choices about their own learning. It is amazing to see how letting students decide and design their own projects brings ownership, engagement and cooperation among learners.

Classrooms in America today are having a tougher time now that class sizes are up and funding is down. Now we are up to 32 students in a classroom! This year, I would like to focus on art and music education, as well as continuing to build up my P.E. equipment. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!!...

I have a classroom full of eager learners. In first grade, their minds are so curious and they are ready to learn new things. With your help, I will be able to expand my classroom library and some of the resources I use to teach new material. I have several students who do not have access to books and supplies on a regular basis outside of the clas...

Many of the 450 students in my school are from low socio-economic backgrounds and do not have the musical experiences of many other children their age (private lessons, instruments, etc.) Funding would allow for the purchase of instructional materials and instruments. We specifically need a Yamaha keyboard laboratory and a class set of violins. ...

The school is pressured to keep costs low so they are not willing to buy more materials for my students. We are in need of support for students who need donations for sketchbooks, pencils, markers, etc. Every little bit helps and I do my best to stretch funds and make sure everyone gets the materials they need....

Our school, which is a Title One school, has lost its art and music programs. Studies have shown that students who participate in the arts do better in the basic academic subjects. Since many of the students in my class are on free or reduced lunches they dont get the opportunity to be involved in art or music classes outside the school environme...

I teach 625 studetns grades K-5 once a week for 45 minutes. We do a variety of projects from painting to ceramics. The additional funding would be used to purchase clay and ceramics supplies. Plus paints and paper that we use throughout the year. Any donations to the art classroom would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mrs. Feeney...

On equal ground, my kids could compete with any students in the country. My first graders are smart. They are gifted, talented, and brilliant in ways they cannot express because of the unfortunate opportunity gap that they face. I teach in a school that serves hundreds of families living below the poverty line. All but 2% of the students in my school identify as minorities and they face some difficulties in the their lives that the majority of first graders in the rest of the country will, fortunately, never have to face. I chose this school for that reason. These are my beautiful people and I love them!
I also love to teach. It is such a joy to get to know a crop of students and their families. Where I teach, we have amazing families that would do anything to help their children succeed but the reality is, resources are low. I returned to the city I grew up in to teach and in my first year I spend an upward of $1500 on my classroom last year. Realizing I knew I could not sustain this habit and that even if I could afford it, I was missing out on the opportunity to partner with other passionate people, I quickly wised up. I did not know much about classroom funding but I knew I was not the only person who valued teachers and the education of our youth. So I researched classroom grants and such and ended up on adopt-a-classroom. This website thrills me and simply because you are reading this, you understand or at least sympathize with teachers' struggles concerning classroom funding. I want to give my children the WORLD... but I believe the best way to do that is open them up to the world. That is hard when my kids do not have pencils though. Thus, my 22+ babies and I are reaching out to you to help provide our class with basic classroom wonderful-ness. (What would this post from a 1st grade teacher be without a fun new word!) Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you will support us!
