At ThisWeekinWorcester.com, we are lucky to have the continued support of so many teachers in Worcester — both in the public and private school systems.

Additionally, we are proud to have two Worcester school committee members — Molly McCullough and Brian O’Connell — share their knowledge, opinions and the goings-on of Worcester Public Schools, especially with a regular look at state funding for the Worcester school district.

As part of our effort to help continue the discussion of what our school system needs, here we will take a look at what the teachers in Worcester need for their classrooms.

Donorschoose.org – an online crowdfunding organization that connects teachers in high-need communities with independent donors that want to help – is a popular tool to raise money for much needed classroom equipment and programs, as requested by individual classroom teachers.

We will have a growing list of Donorschoose.org projects from Worcester teachers here. We encourage our readers to donate if and when they can. When a project is fully funded, we will make a special announcement.

Since there are nearly 200 active projects from Worcester teachers on Donorschoose.org, we will publish 20 at a time and update the list each week. Some of the projects below are partially funded and some are currently doubling donations. Please take a look at each project!

This page will be updated constantly, will be shared at least once a week via social media and can be found in the Public Schools section of ThisWeekinWorcester.com.
