My Students

My scholars consist of a wide range of personalities that all have one thing in common, the eagerness to grow as scholars. With your support of my project, I will be able to provide my scholars with resources for success.

I want to set my 5th graders on a path for college readiness.

My scholars are growing up in a low-income area that does not predict their educational trajectory. They work hard to get smart, have fun, and be college-ready. I have a class of twenty-five, brilliant scholars! They are researchers, mathematicians, scientists, authors, historians, etc. My students are the future of Dallas and future members of our society. Every day, they come into my classroom excited to learn and ready to take on the challenges I have set up for them. These youngsters deserve the absolute best education they can get, and they deserve to be supported in every way possible in the most important year of their educational career.

My Project

We need a solid and sturdy bookshelf in our classroom! This bookshelf will be used for our classroom library to display books. We currently do not have enough space for all of our classroom books and are in need of more shelf space. We are in need of more storage in our classroom and that is why we need this fantastic bookshelf!

My students love to read!

A nice looking bookshelf that is organized will make it easier for students to access the books they want to read. Books will be organized into bins and displayed on this safe and sturdy bookshelf. Books will be sorted by reading level, genre, or authors which will make it easier for my 5th Graders to choose the books they are interested in.
