My Students

My students are amazing kids who face many challenges both at home and at school. My students all have various disabilities, but they don't let their disabilities hold them back.

All of my students are unique, but one thing is the same in each of them: they love to learn!

My students come from a variety of backgrounds and face many challenges before even entering our school. We work together every day to overcome those challenges and reach new heights. I work with about 100 special education students every week, reaching kids with various disabilities. My students love to move, explore and play.

My Project

Clean and comfortable students are confident learners. My students' families support their students and do their very best to provide the necessities for the success of their children. Despite their best efforts and hard work, many of my students' families have difficulty affording even the basics for their children.

Clean and comfortable socks will give my students the comfort and confidence needed for school.

When my students have well-fitting and clean socks, without any holes, my students are comfortable and ready to learn. They won't need to be embarrassed anymore because they don't have socks on, not to mention they won't be uncomfortable with cold or sweaty feet due to no socks. These new socks will give my students the confidence they need to become great learners and leaders.
