My name is Kyra Gainous and I'm a graduate of Florida A&M University with a degree in Pre-Occupational Therapy. I'm also nearly a 2014 Teach for America alumni! #ThankATeacher

I currently teach 8th grade science to 167 students who recently took their FCAT Science exam! :)

Though I will miss my students dearly, it's time for me to start my graduate program. This summer I will begin a three year program at Gannon University to become a Doctor of Occupational Therapy. This is my dream and I'm so excited!!

I'm asking for donations to purchase a new laptop for the program. My undergraduate ACER has crashed. Anything one could spare will truly be appreciated. God bless!

We believe that keeping your classroom and school safe should be as simple as possible. So we are creating an app that makes reporting and sharing incidents quick and efficient. We're not to the crowdfunding point yet, but we would really appreciate any feedback you have to offer. We intend to keep this app free for teachers forever. You can learn more at www.beacon.instapage.com - We appreciate any questions, critiques, or comments you have!

Hi. I have created a project to get binders, markers, pens, legal pads, and chart paper to bolster our unit using the Serial podcast. My 10th graders develop their critical thinking, writing, speaking, listening, team working, etc. skills doing this unit, and these supplies will help them keep track of evidence and case notes as they develop their own theories. My students are enthralled by this podcast and cannot wait to dive deeper and deeper into it. My school is high poverty so most of supplies are limited. Please consider helping reach our ultimate goal of $393 today. We currently have $198 left to go. https://www.donorschoose.org/project/detectives-podcasts-serial-developi...

Just wanted to take a minute to share a project for a School in Nicaragua based on Earthbag construction that knitknot architecture designed, and will be building with the local NGO Seeds of Learning.

We have launched a campaign in Indiegogo to get the funding for the construction:


Of course, every little help is extremely useful for us, so if you like the project, your donation would be very appreciated!! Check our amazing rewards!!

Thank you so much!!

I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed. That's why I've created a classroom project request at Donors Choose.org, an award-winning charity.

I'm asking for donations of any size to help my kids. If you know anyone who is passionate about education, please pass this along. Your donation will brighten my students' school year, and you'll get photos and thank yous from our class.

Check out the exciting things we're up to in my classroom:


My students and I greatly appreciate your support!

From under the sea (Grade 3), to land (Grade 4), and finally into deep space (Grade 5), the CoreAtlas Trilogy MAPS three whole years of Common Core Math, Language Arts, & Next Generation Science Standards, giving a HUGE visual checklist of learning goals. Each GUIDEBOOK has over 150 pages that explains one learning standard each, in much simpler words with a comic illustration- its like a learning diary that speaks directly to young people.

The founders at Mind My Education have been working on this project for two years and have just launched this campaign today. The CoreAtlas is already in 15 classrooms and has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from principals, teachers, parents and young people. Please do follow the link below to learn more about the project and their goals

The CoreAtlas maps education in a way that's never been done before! I was an elementary teacher for 10 years before helping create the tool to help teachers feel organized and confident while engaging and empowering students.

We take the research of what *actually* works in teaching/learning, package it in a form that meets the real needs of real classrooms, and present it through beautiful, diverse artwork that captivates children.

My classroom is in need of a makeover after reading so much on here about flexible seating!! I have a project up on https://www.donorschoose.org/Mrs.Smithgr4
I want to help students embrace how they learn best in regards to flexible seating. I feel this will help get us started! Thanks edutopia for sparking my passion and your forward thinking articles!!
