My Students

I am fortunate to have 23 AMAZING 4th-grade students who are PASSIONATE about learning!

They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners.

They are mini-inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet. They are budding ambassadors, world travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers... They are our future and I want to give them a great start to their long successful career.

My students LOVE elephants especially the elephants at The Elephants Sanctuary in Tennessee.

They would really ENJOY "Adopting an Elephant"

My Project

My student have come to love all of the rescued elephants at The Elephant Sanctuary located in Hohenwald, Tennessee. We would love to "Adopt an Elephant" at the Sanctuary.

My 4th Graders, although not able to visit The Elephant Sanctuary in person, yet will feel they impacted the Sanctuary in a positive way through donations in order to "Adopt an Elephant"

This project will help my students learn that THEY can make a difference in educating the public about the future of elephants on our planet as well as taking care of elephants that have worked in zoos or circuses until their retirement.

Education is the answer in helping one of Earth's most amazing creatures: Elephants.

This experience of adopting an elephant will help my students understand that people can make a differerence. One donation at a time. We need your help! Thank you for your support!
