My Students

Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over ninety-five percent of our students receiving free lunch. Our school, like many others in Springfield, is culturally diverse, with students speaking a multitude of languages including English, Spanish, and Somali.

As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are also diverse in their academics.

Students in my classroom range from performing above grade level to performing several grade levels below and everywhere in between. While many of these students struggle both economically and academically, they still come to school eager to learn and better themselves.

My Project

With this school year coming to an end, teachers are already looking ahead to the next year. While I have not met my next group of students, I know we will grow to love each other unconditionally.

In order to start next year off on the right foot, my students will need basic classroom supplies such as pens, pencils, markers, coloring pencils, glue, and index cards.

Many of my students will be unable to bring basic classroom supplies to school each day. Your donation will allow my students to complete their work every day without stressing about needing a pencil or pen!
