My Students

Our school family consists of 32 caring, supportive, hard working students who strive to do their best every day. It is an honor to be their teacher and see them grow academically and socially throughout the year. Our class is made up of various learning styles, backgrounds, and personalities which make for excitement-filled days. My students love to work hard, do hand-on projects, receive praise, and laugh. And let me tell you, there's a lot of laughing.

Your donations will go towards students who are willing to show up every day, no matter their home circumstances, and give their all.

My Project

Instilling a love for reading in students is a goal every educator has. It is hard to share the love and encourage students to pick up a book when our class library is full of yellowed, torn books. Your donation would allow me to freshen our class library up.

Modern, up-to-date books will encourage students to dive into books that they are interested in and excited about.

Watching students, especially struggling readers, find a book they get absorbed in is exciting and inspiring to other students. Your donations will not only impact the students I have this year, but for many years to come.
