My Students

Living in poverty creates many obstacles to learning, including, but not limited to a lack of educational resources and an environment plagued with violence. My students have to endure these struggles on a daily basis.

In spite of these difficulties my students face every day, they are eager and motivated to learn!

Their faces light up when they are able to recognize and decode words and successfully compute math problems. They are overjoyed at their emerging reading and math skills.

My Project

My students need basic school supplies to complete and display their hard work! Many of my students families are not able to supply these basic school materials. Additionally, our school is not able to fund these materials either.

In spite of these disparities, our students still deserve the opportunity to have these basic supplies to support their academic growth and development.

Not only will these materials allow students to learn new skills and concepts but they will be so grateful and appreciative for the opportunity to engage with these basic necessities. If given the opportunity, we will use the pencils, markers, and construction paper across all content areas.
