So you spent your $250 teacher stipend on pencils, paper, ink cartridges and other basic, boring yet necessary items that you need to run your classroom. You have a great idea for some materials to enhance your current unit but no money left to buy them yourself. Head on over to DonorsChoose.org.
Last week I submitted a project to get some indoor gardening supplies for my classroom. By Saturday the project was live, by Sunday it was fully funded and by Tuesday 90% of the materials I requested had been delivered.
At our grade level meeting this week I shared my quick success and several other teachers in the room said that they had always meant to look into getting materials funded on Donors Choose. So my question is what are you waiting for?
