My Students

Please join me in trying to make a better life for our students. Our whole student body receives free or reduced-price lunch. Many students come in begging for the essential items. One of my goals is to help students see that there is a bright future ahead of them and there are so many choices that are available to them. Another goal is to introduce them to the world beyond our CA desert.

A large percentage of our students are in foster care, and several live with family members other than their mom or dad.

Many of these children have had little or no stability in their lives. They are often moved from home to home, with few or no belongings. Many of them have at least one family member who is gang affiliated or in jail in a nearby prison.

Many of these babies have stories that no child should be able to tell. Many times school is the most stable place they know. Thank you in helping me to make their lives more enjoyable and stable while they are learning academically.

My Project

When our classroom is clean, our attendance is Great! Please help my scholars keep up their awesome attendance.

I have a couple of medically fragile students in my class that Need a clean classroom.

We go through Clorox wipes very quickly. I have received many donations from my caring parents, but it is hard for them to keep up with our needs.

Our custodians are very busy and don't get the opportunity to vacuum and sanitize our rooms nightly. We would like to receive Clorox wipes, air fresheners, a vacuum, and a broom/dustpan set to keep our classroom clean daily.
