Help out my classroom!

Edit, 3/13/12:  My project has been fully funded!  THANK YOU so much to those of you who donated or helped spread the word.  I still encourage you to check out Donors Choose--it's a seriously amazing site and I'm sure there are teachers in your community who could use some help!

Hey y'all,

I don't do this much, but Donors Choose is doing a great promotion right now, so what the heck:

I'm trying to get some basic classroom supplies--sticky lined chart paper, post-its, and markers--to make it easier for my students (hi guys!) to create and display work, and to let them discuss their ideas in writing.  Donors Choose has matching funds available THIS WEEK ONLY--so even if you can only give a buck or two, it counts twice as much toward helping me restock these (astonishingly pricey, when you use enough of them) much-needed items.

If you're interested in helping out, first of all, THANK YOU.  Second of all, here's the relevant info:

To learn more or donate:
  1. Visit my Teacher Page,
  2. Choose one of my projects, enter the amount of your donation, and click "Give"
  3. During check-out, enter the word BLOOM where it says "Match or gift code", and your donation will be matched dollar for dollar.
The BLOOM match code will double your donation until the end of the day on Monday, March 19th. So exciting!

And if you can't donate but can drive traffic my way, I'd greatly appreciate that as well!  I'm envisioning using all of these items a lot in my TV Writing and Production class--a brand new elective at our school and something of a passion project for me.  I think these will help us track our goals and production needs and just generally make everything run a lot more smoothly.

Thanks, guys!


  1. Great project! I just visited Donors Choose... :)

    1. :) I just want to shout from the rooftops about DC. I guess this blog entry is like shouting from the rooftops in a sparsely populated area, though...

  2. I love this website!

    When I was in school, our teachers were stretched pretty thin as far as supplies went. Now, a decade and tons of budget cuts later, I can only imagine how much money teachers have to put out each year for their classrooms. It's insane.

  3. You guys rock! My supplies are funded! Thanks so much!


Thanks for coming by! Please chime in!
