My Students

My sixth graders are persistent and ready to face new challenges. They love learning! Their passion for learning inspires me to give my all as their teacher. I teach in an area of low-income and high poverty. Nearly all students qualify for the free lunch program. Our school is a wonderful learning community, yet it is very low on resources.

I want to be able to provide my students with the supplies and resources they need to become motivated, life-long learners.

My Project

My students need a bean bag to create a more inviting classroom library. Not only will the bean bag entice students to pick up a book and read on them, but they are a great form of flexible seating! I am also requesting an assortment of diverse books to fill our library.

Having diverse books in the classroom is important so that students can feel accepted and know they matter.

I cannot wait to support my students' love for reading while exposing them to more diverse books. Having diverse books allows for my students to learn to have empathy for others.
