My Students

After last week's tornado-ravaged our neighborhood, we are in need of costly, but much-needed supplies. Our students deserve it, and in times like these, we are asking for your help.

My students are actively preparing for lifelong learning, and it is tough for them since English is their second language.

These kids are bright and look forward to each and every new lesson brought to them in every area of the school. They love exploring new topics, actively participating in hands-on experiments, and reading aloud to anyone who will listen!

We are an urban school with low socio-economic status, but that doesn't stop us from giving every minute we have to improve​ our grades, our goals, and our impact on humanity. Our school is culturally diverse, which makes for a great global learning experience.

We are an accredited dual language school whose classes mandate that English is taught just as much, if not more than Spanish. We fulfill the "whole child" philosophy and make sure each child feels safe and loved. Truly, no child is left behind!

Even with that much going for us, we need your help so we can soar to even greater heights!

My Project

Our classroom library is missing books for several of our Talented and Gifted Units. We do not have a librarian this year and it is becoming a problem getting books to keep the kids engaged.

Each grade level produces a different project each semester and we need books to help us learn more about the subject.

The project requires reading and writing and a hand-built product. These books will help us have something to read at our fingertips and not have to wait until we get a new librarian.

We hope to have our class library complete with the addition of these books!
