My Students

We teach at a Title I school with a mosaic of diverse learners in Los Angeles, California. Our school has about 500 students. The kids learn more when physically and artistically active, and I do not want them to miss these activities due to the lack of materials.

My goal is to create a well-rounded experience for our enthusiastic and tenacious little learners!

I want the students to be eager to come to school each and every day, excited to learn!

My Project

The Tigers work harder when they earn positive motivation. The certificates will be used when each Tigers achieves each level of Math Wizard, Alphabet Wizard, and Word Wizard.

The ink will be used for the classroom printer so I can print the certificates for each Tiger!

There's Alphabet Wizard, ten levels of Math Wizard and ten levels of Word Wizard. With 25 Tigers in my class, that's 275 certificates to print. The certificates represent the students' learning and hard work. Help me recognize the tenacious Tigers in my class with ink to make certificates! The Tigers will get the ROARING recognition they deserve!
