My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, they are hard-working and vivacious young people. I am looking to keep things simple, exciting, and I am looking forward to providing my students with a creative and flexible learning environment.

Even though they may face challenges, I would love to make sure they are afforded every opportunity to be successful, happy, and have a passion for reading, math, and other subjects in an organized and detailed environment!

My Project

This project's goal is to help replenish the supplies that most students will run out of in the next month. I want to help create a love for writing. All of these basic supplies, pencils, journals, glue sticks, notebooks, are in high demand. In helping these students now, you are helping to create and invest in future writers, journalists, authors, and lovers of learning. We believe writing and creating is highly correlated with great readers. If they have the supplies to do it, we are two steps ahead of the game. We thank you for all of your support and look forward to great writing.
