My Students

I teach in a low-income community, where many children come from single-family homes. Thirty-three percent of my students are African-American and sixty-six percent of them are Latin@ American. 38% of my students are at or above grade level. 62% of my students are below grade level.

Although the students come from a disadvantaged household, they come to school with hope and a willingness to learn.

Opportunities like this donation will ensure my students will achieve their academic goals in reading and math.

My Project

The furniture will provide a positive and safe environment during reading and math computation. Flexible seating will provide comfort and a sense of collaboration as they work in groups. The items will give them purpose and worth. They will know that they are important, being exposed to resources that other affluent communities have that are standard in their districts.

Students will begin to believe in themselves, achieve their goals and be successful at test time and beyond.

The requested items will motivate and drive my students to be resilient, persistent, and goal-driven to achieve and maintain higher academic scores this 2019-2020 school year.
