My Students

My students are walking into a completely different world, going from elementary to junior high school. I want to make this transition as smooth as possible and with your help we can! Most of my students are from a low socioeconomic community. A lot of my students lack the basic materials to start a successful school year, which means most often I have to use my own funds to supply my classroom.

I want my classroom to feel like a second home, frankly because some of my students don't have fully functioning home.

Every single thing that is included on my list will be used inside of my classroom to foster and safe learning environment.

My Project

In the age of virtual learning! My only source of instruction is virtually. Before my computer completely gives out I really need a replacement. I honestly can't afford one and our district seems to just recycle old ones. Anything helps!!! Teaching during a pandemic can be extremely stressful. I want to be more confident in my lesson with my Technology shutting down on me during my lesson. My passion I to deliver amazing instruction and the only way I can do that during this pandemic is to have dependable Technology! Thank you in advance for all that you give!
