Miss Axelrad's First Grade Classroom
Organized by: Rachel Axelrad
About me: Hi friends! My name is Rachel and right now I feel like one of the luckiest people in the world. In August, I'll be fulfilling a life-long goal and starting my very own classroom as a first grade teacher! I can barely contain my excitement.
Why I need some help: I will be working in a very low-income area of South Los Angeles and supplies are hard to come by. Unfortunately, students' educational experiences are often unfairly hindered by their poverty. I want to change that by providing them with the tools that will make their education engaging, relevant and intellectually enriching.
Where the money goes: All donations will go straight to my classroom and will directly benefit my future first-graders. I'm hoping to buy books to build a comprehensive classroom library, supplies such as pencils, paper, crayons, etc that my students may not be able to bring from home, and fun classroom activities that will make first grade a blast! Thank you so much for your help. My future first graders and I appreciate you tremendously.
