Review for Crayons to Classrooms, Dayton, OH, USA
Crayons to Classrooms is amazing! I am blown away by the organization, its donors, and its volunteers.
I was able to shop for items for my classroom that are necessary and that will help to enrich learning for my students. I was excited to pick up many desk supplies for myself that are necessary for my day-to-day teacher duties such as lesson planning and grading. My students are very excited to use new art supplies, modeling dough, science and math activities, and even a programmable robot. As a teacher, I am used to often spending a lot of my own money on classroom supplies, materials, and activities. It was a breath of fresh air to be able to receive from generous donors and shop for my classroom not out-of-pocket. I teach in a small district where almost 100% of students are on free and reduced lunch, where many students come to school without any supplies. As a first-year teacher, I myself was coming in with few supplies and materials. Even just my first shopping trip was a HUGE help!
I am so grateful! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
