My Students

My students are self driven, they are wanting to learn. They come from low economic demographics. Most of them don't have the means and/or are exposed to meaningful learning. They hardly get out of their neighborhood and learn skills that they need to be successful in their academics. Their vocabulary needs a lot of support.

This group of students love to read; despite their economic status, I praise them for their hard work all the time.

I would love to have more incentives to help them work hard for their academic endeavors. This group of students love to learn.

My Project

We are constantly working with building students to be responsible as well as have creativity. Therefore keeping their materials in their pencil/pen bags will help student have easy access to them; which helps them be ready for class work. The use of these colorful Pens will help them create colorful writings that student are constantly working on.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.After school my students take part in an after school reading program and having tasty treats while they are in the reading club will keep their tummies satisfied until they get home to have their meal.
