I came across this online: http://www.donorschoose.org/ It matches potential donors with teachers around the US. I was struck by how many teachers were seeking funding for basic items. One Special Education teacher needed chairs that weren't too small for her students! It makes me thankful for the district Duckie attends as there are basic resources and more for the students. How difficult it must be to teach students in crowded classrooms that are underfunded.
