A Cut Above

My students need this product to give them a creative outlet. Ours was stolen and we have been lost without it. :( WE need Cricut.

My Students

I teach at a school located in the heart of San Diego. 100% of our student population receives free lunch. My students are some of the most amazing students that you will ever meet. They are from all over the world. Many came to this country to escape hardships in their countries.

My students want to learn so badly and I will stop at nothing to provide them with the best education that I possibly can.

Every donation you make to our class helps make it possible for a child to access learning in a way that they may not have gotten otherwise. You can make a difference.

My Project

Our class recently had one of these beautiful machines. Unfortunately, it has gone missing from our classroom. :(

These products will allow my students to express their creativity by enhancing their projects with what the Cricut can make.

It will also allow me, as their teacher, to create a fun and inviting experience for them in our classroom. This machine has endless possibilities. It can make classroom decorations, student made stickers, project enhancers, cards, and so, so much more.

With so many limits on what teachers can doing during the school day due to demanding deadlines, this gives the students an artistic outlet that they really need.
