My Students

The 80+ students that I will serve this school year represent the future of our quickly growing city. My students and their families come from a wide range of backgrounds and each of their unique experiences, shape who they are as learners and participants in our community. As their teacher, it is my job to be aware of my student's diverse learning needs and adapt accordingly, in order to ensure that every one of my students experience personal growth and success this school year. Despite the differences amongst us, one thing will bring us together this year. Our dedication to being the best versions of ourselves socially, emotionally, academically, and civically.

My Project

For most, back to school shopping is something to look forward to. Excitement and anticipation builds for the new year as students pick out new notebooks, pencils, crayons, markers, backpacks, and so much more. But for some, back to school shopping creates a lot of stress. Some parents who are working multiple jobs, late hours, or have been facing financial hardships, never get around to checking off the supplies from the "required supplies" list sent out to families over summer break. Every year, there are students who come with few to no supplies and are forced to begin the school year trying to figure out if and how they will explain why they don't have what they need. This year, it is my hope that no student in my room will have to explain "why".

With the donation of these supplies, I will be able to have the essential supplies available in my classroom, for whoever may need it.

Whether it is for the student who has nothing or the student who left their entire book bag on the bus. These supplies will allow all of my students to come into class without the added stress of wondering if they will have what the need... even in January when the excitement of the new school year has worn off and everyone's supplies begin to magically disappear.
