Awesome! I Love This Place!

My students need to be in a classroom environment where there are motivation posters, culture posters, vocabulary, grammar posters, and instructional charts to increase students learning.

My Students

Let's motivate our Advanced Placement students so that they want to stay in school and become lifelong learners. Our constant reminders and motivation will open their eyes, their minds and their hearts.

The majority of my AP students come from very poor areas of California.

Most of them belong to dysfunctional families and live in very poor conditions. The school that my students attend is one of the biggest in the nation in terms of population, which makes it even more difficult for teaching and learning. Many of the classes these students have are overcrowded. At the present time, I'm teaching 3 classes with 40 or more students.

My Project

I believe that we, as human beings, like to be in an environment that motivates us either at work or at school. It is a basic but very essential factor for us to make us want to be there and function more enthusiastically. My classroom is always clean because I sweep it everyday. However, with the school budget so tight, there is no money I can receive from my school to buy posters and other teaching materials to decorate my classroom. My room looks dull with a few students works and no posters to teach and motivate my students. I fully believe that with motivational and cultural posters, learning signs, the vocabulary and grammar posters and the other school supplies that I am requesting, the students will be very motivated and will be in their way to become lifelong learners.

I am asking "you" kind donors to support me with this project so that you can make a difference in my students lives.

With your help, more that 200 hundred students that I have this school year, will benefit by motivating them and thus learning from posters and charts they constantly see everyday. You will also make a difference to future students that will come to my classroom. Thank you and God bless you.
