My Students

I love my students. I´ve been teaching 27 years—I am changing grades and excited. We are an inner-city Trenton School. Many families struggle to give their children all they need. One hundred percent get free breakfast and lunch. My $100 district budget doesn't allow me to do all I like. I used to spend a lot more, but now I have my own medically fragile child and can't do it. I would love to give them more and make learning such a great experience!

My Project

My students want to learn. They want to see the board from wherever they sit. Chalkboards are messy, hard to see, and often create sneezes and sniffles. And they are dirty! They don't look clean or neat, especially after being there as long as I have or longer!

Second graders are so excited for school.

A colorful board and markers somehow make it so interesting to participate and maybe even show your work. I love when a student wants to join in, sometimes because they love to come to the board! I want these children to have the same amazing school experience my children had because I love them each like my own! Please help us be shining superstars!
