My Students

I have one of the most wonderful group of students! They are sweet, kind, responsible, hardworking, and curious learners.

Our school is a low-income school in a low-income neighborhood where resources are scarce.

The school does the best they can to provide all necessary tools, but it never quite seems to be enough.

My students are a diverse group of students who come together to create a wonderful learning community. Over half of the students in my class are English language learners and all students bring a unique perspective to the classroom. They deserve nothing but the very best!

My Project

Our school has a very limited and very tight budget, especially this year, and "extras" like art supplies never make the cut. This is why I need help buying art supplies for my classroom because art isn't "extra" it's essential!

Losing out on art projects means losing out on self-expression, risk-taking​ opportunities, building varied skills, and giving kids who don't excel in academics an opportunity to excel in a different important area.

I would love to have nice card stock paper for my students to work with as well as paint supplies in many different colors. My students LOVE doing art and we need help getting the supplies that will allow us to create!
