My students have hearts of gold. Each day they endure more than most of us can even imagine as they are growing up in a neighborhood stricken by extreme poverty. Despite these hardships, my students come in each day with a hunger to learn. They push me to bring my A game every day to give them more. School is their safe zone and and stability in the crazy world around them. During the hours they are in school, these students deserve access to all the materials they can imagine. Unfortunately, sometimes their creativity is limited by supplies. Funding this project will open the world even more to my students!!
