Building a Positive Future

Help me give my students the best tools to build a positive future!

  • $1,310 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My 1st grade ELL learners thrive in having the ability to be creative and learn through various experiences at our inner city school. They are problem solvers with challenging and beautiful dreams. They are unique and already know they can make powerful and positive changes for a better future.

I want my student to be confident in being different.

I want them to fearlessly face the future. These students are amazing and work hard to grow their knowledge each day.

My Project

My students must overcome the stigma of being from an inner city school and the challenge of being ELL learners. Most students start out reading well below their grade level. By providing them with multiple books on their various reading levels they will be able to practice and grow confident in reading, which helps develop their foundation for the future.

Being able to physically see mathematical concepts will allow student to explore math on their own and think about numbers and equations in multiple ways.

I want my students to have the ability to critically and confidently think outside the box.
