My Students

My students are a group of diverse learners that are very passionate about education. My students show up every day eager to learn and progress. They truly enjoy learning in many several ways. One of their favourite ways is to use technology. Unfortunately, our school isn't able to provide my students with technology because of budget restrictions. I believe that students can only succeed if they have the right tools and supplies. As our future workforce, I believe it is imperative that they get the opportunity to use technology to prepare them for their future careers and to become lifelong learners.

My students might not have an abundance of financial resources, but what they do have is an abundance of curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.

My students are very diverse learners. Some of them need additional support to learn the English language, and some of them need additional support to become strong mathematicians.

My Project

The 2018-2019 school year is upon us and my students need back to school supplies to tackle this new school year. These are a few of the supplies that I use during the school year. It can be very pricey if go about it all alone. I need your help to help my kids with everyday supplies they will use. I think that every student should be able to access education without being hindered by the lack of supplies that a school provides. Pencils, markers, folders, and colours are just a few of the supplies I will require this year.
