I teach first-grade students at a rural elementary school in the Appalachian region of Northeastern Kentucky. Most of my students struggle with poverty, and three-fourths of them qualify for free and reduced lunch. My students have a positive mindset and a desire to learn. These students are kind, caring, and considerate children, needing extra assistance to flourish. My students have so much potential, and I enjoy watching them grow and learn each day. I want to be able to provide them with the basic classroom supplies they need to thrive.
My students need pencils, crayons, glue and other items in order to complete everyday assignments that improve their math fluency skills, phonics skills, etc. My students need dry erase markers in order to engage in hands on activities that build their learning foundation for math and reading.
Your generosity could help make these learning experiences possible.
Without assistance, our students could not receive the support that they so desperately need. The knowledge that students gain from these learning experience will help them solve problems, develop their higher level thinking, and build subject-area knowledge that will be useful throughout their lives and future careers.
