My Students

This year more than ever, my kids are a group of leaders with very strong leadership skills. They are concerned about the needs and wants of others, and go above and beyond to make others aware of those needs.

Every student is interesting, unique, and deserves the best that the world can offer them.

I believe it is my job to prepare my kids for life to the best of my ability, and I see such potential in each and every child that has ever been a part of my classroom.

My Project

More and more as educators we are seeing students that come from low income families that are struggling to make ends meet. Many of my students come from families that have to make the choice between food for the family or school supplies.

About a fourth of my students this year did not start school with all the supplies they needed.

Thanks to projects that have been funded in the past I have been able to help make sure the kids had pencils and paper, but my supply is now running low and my children are still in need of these things to be successful for the remainder of the year.
