My Students

I have a wonderful group of energetic students who are full of life. Every day, they work very hard to reach their goals.

My students come from different backgrounds in a Title I school located in South Central Los Angeles.

More than half of my students are from low-income households. My classroom is a melting pot of different cultures. My students are eager to learn and be creative every day. They are sweet, respectful, responsible, kind, happy, and curious students who love to explore the endless possibilities in our classroom. They are amazing kids who deserve the best education. I feel blessed to teach such an amazing group of students. I feel very proud of my students working very hard and trying their best every day.

My Project

I am requesting learning tools that will help my students learn about diversity, love, respect, antiracism, equity, inclusion, compassion and kindness to each other.

Art is a great way to explore diversity, especially when learning about different cultures.

My students will use a variety of art supplies such as stampers, paper, erasers, crayons, markers, play-doh, Wikki sticks and paint to create posters and collages about celebrating diversity and different cultures in our community.

They will also be able to create artwork that reflects themselves in their drawing pads. They will use the treats and bubbles to learn and celebrate kindness and diversity.

These materials will support understanding of diversity and equality and in our classroom.

Thank you in advance for providing my students with the essential materials to get them prepared for success. Your kind donations will make a tremendous difference in all of my students' academic lives.

Thank you again for spreading kindness in our classroom and helping us to celebrate the beauty and diversity in our world.

Mr. Gutierrez
Grades PreK-2
Nearly all students from low‑income households
