My Students

Welcome to our class, where every child is a Star! Our school is home of the Stars and our children shine bright and fill our class with enthusiasm and energy.

Our school helps service some of the most unique children in the city of Chicago!

The students here have a wide range of abilities. As a Special Education teacher it is my mission that my children feel safe and love school. Help me instill the love of learning in the little minds I teach.

My Project

Without having their basic needs met, kids are not able to learn and feel comfortable in their environment! I am asking for basic items to increase the quality of my classroom. These items may seem basic but in my classroom they are essential! We need a warm change of clothes - shirts, socks and pants - a Brita water filter, zip loc bags, and baby wipes.

My lessons are for naught if my students feel hungry, thirsty, or unclean.

With the warm weather quickly approaching, my kids do not have access to safe-to-drink water after playing outside. In the winter months, my students need warm layers! Help me keep my classroom clean. I want to create a comfortable learning environment so that my students main focus is on the wonderful and educational lessons that I create!
