My Students

"Computers are magnificent tools for the realization of our dreams, but no machine can replace the human spark of spirit, compassion, love, and understanding." - Louis Gerstner, CEO, IBM

Students love computers and coming to my room to learn about the different aspects of STEM, they can be who they really want to be.

My school is a Title I school, and the majority of the students come from low-income homes or live in shelters. They cannot afford the basics needed for school, and I cannot ask them to pay for them.

My Project

These are basic supplies to help start the year and have an effective and new classroom. Scissors, wiggle cushions, stapler, Welcome banner, books and bulletin board paper are essential items needed in the classroom and some are basic needs for students to become successful.

From projects to daily classroom assignments, these supplies will help my students in their work and thus helping them to become successful in their work and their overall grades.

Floor decals will help students with coordination and movement on where to stand. By helping my students early, the supplies will be available for them once they come back to school in September.
