My Students

My students come from a wide variety of home environments. All of my students have a hard time learning. Some are from other countries, but many just struggle to make sense of reading and math. They find school to be tedious and boring, because it doesn't make sense to them.

I teach in a rural school, that is close to a city.

Many of my students come from hard working families. The parents often have two jobs to make ends meet. The kids come to school with a will to learn and the families want the absolute best for their children. The students I work with have learning disabilities, communication problems or are just learning English. They are struggling to make sense of the world around them and need someone to believe in them.

My Project

The games that you provide us with, will help the students practice the tedious tasks and enjoy school. These games will make learning FUN! Who wouldn't want to have fun learning? I want my students to practice reading everyday. I don't want it to be boring. I want them to have fun and get the practice that they need. They can do just that with these games.

Won't you make learning fun for the students who struggle the most?

Please consider the gift of learning for the struggling students. It will make their days enjoyable and learning easier.
