COMPLETE CONTEST DETAILS CAN BE FOUND HERE

Clark County School District will start the school year on August 7, 2023. As local teachers prepare for the beginning of the school year and their new students, they are most often left funding classroom decor and supplies themselves. More than 90% of teachers will spend their own money on supplies for their students and classroom, on average around $750 each. 

Teachers work during the summer and before the beginning of the school year to create classroom environment that will help our children succeed in their education and personal growth. 

Nevada has one of the lowest per student funding in the country, coming in just over $11,000 for the 2023-2024 school year, compared to more than $28,000 per student in the state of New York.

There is no spending allowance provided to Nevada teachers from the state and Clark County School District doesn’t provide an allowance to teachers either. If any funding is provided for teacher supplies it comes from the school budget or from fundraising by the school or organizations like the PTA. We spoke with several Clark County teachers and learned that general education teachers receive less than $200 each year toward supplies, if they receive any funds at all. Teachers are responsible for the education of our children and need community support. 

We asked local teachers to send in their wish lists and received more than 300 so far. Each teacher provided a description of their classroom and their Amazon wish list. Please consider supporting a local teacher if you are able. Scroll through the lists below and see if there is a classroom that sparks your interest.

SUPPORT LOCAL TEACHERS

Las Vegas Elementary Schools

I’m a first year teacher! I’m still trying to figure out what will be useful in a classroom. 🙂 I don’t even know what I don’t need. 

MY WISH LIST

I’m a second year teacher for 2nd grade and I’d really love to have more manipulatives, games and puzzles for my students. They love working with hands on activities.

MY WISH LIST

I am blessed to serve kids with great attitudes and that really want to excel in life, they are from hardworking families but unfortunately over 90% of my students live at or below the poverty line.

MY WISH LIST

This is my 2nd year teaching STEM as a special at my school. We just implemented this program into our school. It gives students a chance to use critical thinking skills along with lots of technology that I am trying to bring into the classroom. Students are learning to code and interact with one another to program devices. We also have a makers space where students get to create and work through problem solving to create ways to solve real world problems.

MY WISH LIST

I am opening a new primary autism program with primarily kindergarten students. I would love to provide them with these materials to have opportunities for differentiated instruction and growth!

MY WISH LIST

I have a great group of students who are always eager to learn new things. With our school being Title 1, many of my students come from different socioeconomic backgrounds. Over 70% of my students are Hispanic with English being their second language. Having such a diverse group, has made it fun and challenging at times. Despite all our challenges, this group has proven that they can overcome anything so long as they are given the opportunity to do it.

MY WISH LIST

I teach 1st grade in Henderson, NV! This will be my 6th year teaching first grade and my first graders have my heart! ❤️❤️ These supplies will help me create an organized and nurturing space for my students, as well as thoughtful small groups to meet my students needs! In the short time we are together, we become a family, and I pride myself in creating meaningful relationships with my students!

MY WISH LIST

I teach first grade at a small elementary school in Henderson. I want my students to have all of the tools they need to be successful learners! First grade is a crucial time for reading and math development. I am so grateful for any supplies I can use to aid my students learning!

MY WISH LIST

I teach 4th grade. The switch to now being an upper grade is developmentally a big step for students. I have a ton of book series and games on my wishlists because students start to have friend troubles in fourth grade. Kids don’t forgive and forget as easily and some students find it extremely hard to make friends if they are newer.

MY WISH LIST

My students are an amazing, vibrant group who are ready to learn and deserve the very best. Many of my students come to kindergarten without prior access to preschool. My ultimate goal is to have them reading, writing, adding, and subtracting by the time they leave kindergarten. These items will help me accomplish that in many different ways… from making my classroom more functional to having more books and hands-on items for them.

MY WISH LIST

Teacher's begin with a blank slate for their classrooms and work to turn them into comfortable places for children to learn and grow. From painting, hanging art work, adding flexible seating, and creating custom themes for their students, a lot of time, effort, and money is spent on classrooms and supplies.

I teach kindergarten to a diverse group of students. I want to set the foundation for my students to love learning and become strong early readers. My school provides the classroom basics, but these materials will give my students more hands-on learning experiences.

MY WISH LIST

I’m Courtney, a first grade teacher in Henderson, NV. This coming year will be my 16th year teaching first grade, and I couldn’t be more excited to welcome my new little classroom family! I strive to create a safe, nurturing classroom environment where all students feel valued and special. Creating a safe space for my students to identify and manage their emotions is vital for their mental health and overall well-being. These items will help my first grade students be successful in our classroom, while feeling safe and loved while learning. 

MY WISH LIST

Kindergarten classroom where students can learn, make friends, have fun, and most importantly, feel safe and loved.

MY WISH LIST

I need things like your everyday school supplies to support my students as they learn this school year!

MY WISH LIST

These supplies will be used for a title 1 school of amazing Kindergarteners! This is my first year in Kinder and want to make it the best experience I can for my students!!! Thank you!

MY WISH LIST

I want my classroom to be a fun, safe environment for my students to grow, learn, and flourish. Purchasing anything from my wish list will help me accomplish this goal! Thank you for your help and support!

MY WISH LIST

I pride myself in the ability of being able to build strong relationship with students. I want my classroom to look and be a place where a child feels safe and secure. I want it to be a place that they enjoy coming to. I work in a school with mostly low income families. This means that I have to expect to provide supplies for my students.

MY WISH LIST

I come from a long line of teachers in my family. My mother recently retired from CCSD after 25 years of teaching first and second grade. This is my second-year teaching at a public school for CCSD. I teach at a Title I At Risk/High Needs Elementary school located in North Las Vegas, Nevada.

My schools “supply closet” is lacking to put it mildly. We have no PTA or parent involvement. We also probably have the most embarrassing school library (it’s only got 3 shelves-it’s a small library with not many Kinder friendly/AR grade level appropriate books). We don’t even have popular titles like Rainbowfish or the Biscuit Book series.

Most of my students’ families cannot provide school supplies so I end up having to purchase most of the supplies out of my personal pocketbook. Many of my students are also English language learners. Despite the challenges my students face in and out of the classroom, they come to school every day with a smile on their face eager and excited to learn.

As many of you know teachers can only write off $200.00 on their taxes and I spent over $2,500.00 out of my personal pocket last school year. Any donations no matter how small are appreciated for my Kindergarten classroom as well as all other teachers too.

MY WISH LIST

I will be teaching the Leader in Me techniques. Since returning back to school after the pandemic many students are having a hard time adjusting. I am hoping to help them with social/emotional learning. I have a theater background and would like to introduce theater activities and video production to help them.

MY WISH LIST

I teach Technology/Computer Science at a K-5 Title 1 school. I teach all 600 students at our school. I want to bring the possibilities of technology to my students through coding, robotics, media, graphic design, AR/VR, and AI. Exposing students to these technologies will help them become better digital citizens and build their skills and interests for potential future careers. I would also like to build up a class library of books about all things technology.

MY WISH LIST

I am at a Title 1 school teaching little ones. Many of my students are below the poverty line and live in food deserts. I’d like to build them a garden to encourage healthy outdoor experiences and good food habits. We don’t have any nature on our playground, not even a tree! I’d like to introduce plant care and plant cycles too for science.

MY WISH LIST

 

My classroom is a vibrant and organized space that fosters a love for learning. I want to provide my students with a wide range of educational resources, including books, and games, so my students have access to engaging materials that enhance their learning. Your support in fulfilling this wish list will greatly contribute to creating an enriching and dynamic classroom for my students.

MY WISH LIST

Any and all help with my list will help me provide my students with awesome opportunities to become better artists and create works of art for our annual art show.

MY WISH LIST

I have been teaching for twenty years. This year so am moving to a new school and will have a brand new class of first graders. Every year I spend a lot of money on my classroom to make learning fun and engaging for my little learners. I would love to get new reading tools to practice phonics skills, books, and materials to make our classroom a warm welcoming place for all my students.

MY WISH LIST

 

My first graders are MONSTERS! They are Magnificent, Outstanding, Nice, Special, Terrific, Energetic, Responsible Students who love to LEARN! I teach these first grade monsters in Nevada and really need help with getting quality supplies/materials to help enrich their minds and provide them with the best education.

MY WISH LIST

 

We are moving into a brand new building this year and I am so excited to have windows in my classroom for the first time in my career.

My classroom Amazon list has some organizational items to help keep the learning smooth without the worry of, “Where did that go?” My list also has some student incentives that I use to reward my amazing students. Last, the list also has a bunch of books! 2nd grade is an essential time to share the love of literature with kids. It’s my goal every year to get the perfect book into the arch of my students’ hands that will spark that love of reading for the rest of their lives. Your contributions to our classroom are very appreciated!!
