My Students

"Nothing is going to change, oh, no it's not, unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot!" - The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss. My greatest accomplishment will be for all my students to develop a love of reading and learning early in life that continues to help them grow and develop throughout life.

The majority of my students are underprivileged and come from nontraditional or single family homes.

This doesn't hold them back from wanting to know about everything! They are so full of questions and wonder. I only pray that I can fill every question they have with answers, and if I can't, I can at least point them in a direction where they can find them.

My Project

I am requesting a karaoke machine that comes with a microphone, and a variety of classroom musical instruments. My students love music! If this project is funded, my students will be excited about learning our concepts by music! Each of my students has wanted to play an instrument. They also love to make beautiful noise! My student love to sing and really enjoy learning with music as well as making music. Having a karaoke machine and a classroom with musical instruments will not only give my students a sense of their voice, it will help build confidence. It will also show them how synergizing with one another is important when creating sound together. My class will love the tambourines, maracas, cymbals, karaoke CDs, and karaoke system. They will be a very nice addition to our classroom. I can't wait to see what educational songs they will sing in the karaoke machine, and they can even have a band playing while they sing!
