My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income/high-poverty school district. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I have several students who struggle with learning disabilities. I am looking to provide my students with a creative and meaningful learning experience.

My students are creative, and they love to learn.

They need materials that suit their variety of learning differences. We all know differently and require a variety of materials to do so. We will truly appreciate any help provided with funding for this project.

My Project

My students need to learn how to balance. This will help my students in life as some struggle with balance. This will help them in life and give them another lesson to learn in gym class. This will help keep my students active as well.

Balancing is a lesson most kids need.

These balancing discs will last our students a long time and will significantly impact them. Thank you for helping keep my students active and learning through new lessons. Your result will be seen for years to come.
