My Students

My 630 students are in grades K-5. I teach 28 different classes each week. My school is a diverse mix of students from the Charlotte, NC community. We have many different nationalities represented and with all levels of ability. The one thing they all have in common is the importance of quality education. In fact, their futures depend on it.

Despite being economically challenged, these kids are true go-getters and lovers of learning.

They embrace everything I am teaching them. They love school, everything from reading to math to art to anything technology-based. School is a safe haven for many of my students.

My Project

We are two weeks into the new school year and things are off to a great start. We are in need of a few basic supplies for the library. One thing we need right now is Kleenex. Serving 600+ kids has us going through quite a bit very quickly. I need iPad screen protectors to keep them safe from being broken.

We also need new dry erase markers to use with our dry erase table.

The students love drawing on this bright neon green table. We need dry erase sheet protectors so we can reuse the same papers over by more than one class and save a few trees. I would love a wireless number keypad so I can create a self-checkout station for the students to use when checking out library books. Lastly, I need a roll of clear barcode label covers to use within the library.
