My Students

I teach a group of twenty-five first grade students in one of the cities with the highest crime in the nation. All the ​students at my school site receive a free lunch. A full 97% of my school's student population is Hispanic, and most of them are first-generation in the United States. At least 15% of my students are newcomers to the country. School is one of the only places in which my students interact with someone who speaks academic English.

Living and attending school in a highly impoverished urban setting, my students are not exposed to many educational experiences outside of the classroom.

Exposing my students to different types of learning while keeping them engaged and entertained is very important to me.

My Project

Please provide us with the many materials we need to be prepared and ready to learn. I am asking for materials that are basic in education: pens, pencils, erasers, construction paper, tape, glue sticks and markers. We started the school year with many of these materials but they will not be enough to finish the school year strong.

I hope that you can support my students in providing our classroom with very basic learning materials like construction paper, pencils and glue.

We hope that having these materials will allow us to learn without being sidetracked by the basic materials that we currently lack.
