My Students

I am a first grade teacher at a Title I school, in a low-income, high poverty school district, where 99% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. These students overcome adversity every day when they simply walk through my classroom door.

They are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom and yet, they are always excited to come to school each morning and are willing and ready to learn.

I love to take any opportunity to give my first graders to gain what will help them be prepared and ready for the future.

My Project

My students are in desperate need of school supplies. Our stock at school is very limited, so I am having to provide my students with all the supplies they need. We need pencils, sharpeners, paper and glue sticks. We pretty much use these items on a daily basis. Without them, my students are not given the best opportunities to learn efficiently. In our classroom, we do a lot of hands-on activities that involve all of these school supplies.

We use these basic supplies: glue sticks, pencils, and paper every day in the classroom for learning activities and individual practice.

Supplying us with these school supplies will help tremendously in our classroom.
