My Students

The students that I am so fortunate to work with are amazing third graders who all come from our poverty-stricken community. They need as much motivation as they can get.

Many of my students experience so much trauma that they do not like coming to school.

They come from families that do not have the resources or the ability to help them academically or financially. We want to create a positive atmosphere for them where we can celebrate their successes.

Many of them​ have learning disabilities and struggle with language acquisition, speech impairments and/or emotional disabilities. Their life experiences have left them reading way below grade level, struggling to express themselves, often resorting to violent outbursts and lacking the basics that many take for granted.

My Project

My students are in need of all of the basic supplies like crayons, markers, and card stock. Every day we have a need for these basic supplies that seems to enhance the daily success of every child. They will be able to keep their supplies in the zippered pouches along with their creative drawings and writing pieces.

Every student deserves basic supplies that will help them to improve their academic abilities and being able to have a place for their things teaches them to value them.

By receiving these basic supplies my students will be able to show their creative ability through artwork, as well as, showing their academic knowledge. These items will help my students feel more confident because they will not be lacking the basic supplies that some of the other students have in the school.
