I am an Agricultural Education, Science Teacher and FFA Advisor at East Marshall high school.
There are a ton of items I purchase myself for my classes. From Science labs to working labs in the field, my students need various supplies.
I am currently lacking important things inside my class like scissors, glue, tape, markers.
It would be great if we were chosen!
