Gloria Gittelman, a seventh-grade math teacher at Shue-Medill Middle School, sets up her classroom last week. Gittelman has created a project on Donors Choose requesting just over $2,000 so she can purchase tables for her students.

Scrolling through Donors Choose, a website geared toward teachers who require funding to purchase classroom items, shows teachers from all over the Christina School District are seeking support to purchase items for their classrooms.
