A Space for Everything

Help me give my students new shelves to hold all of our classroom books and STEM supplies!

My Students

A day in my classroom is a day filled with learning, respect, and hard work. My school is in a rural area, and the students whom I teach come from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Our class motto is, "In this room, we don't do easy.

We make easy happen through hard work and learning!" I have high expectations for my students and do everything in my ability to help them achieve their goals! I enjoy planning creative lessons and projects as much as my students enjoy working on them!

My Project

This project is for lumber and supplies which we'll need to build additional shelves in my classroom for storage. We currently have some low bookshelves that are filled to overflowing with books. That is a wonderful problem to have, but now we need more shelves! I have someone donating his time to build the shelves, but I will need quite a bit of lumber, screws, and paint for the project. The shelves will be 8 feet wide and 6 feet tall.

My class and even the school as a whole is made up of many avid readers.

I love finding new books for our classroom library, and I love seeing my students' faces when we get new books. These shelves will give me additional storage space for picture books and class sets of chapter books and will allow me to make sure that all of our books are able to be viewed and easily selected by my students.

The shelves I am having built will also hold STEM kits on the upper shelves so that they can be stored year-round in our classroom.
