My Students

We are a community of learners dedicated to academic excellence. While our elementary school is located in an inner city, poverty-stricken neighborhood, with a high rate of crime and devoid of many resources, this has not deterred our hard-working students from attaining academic excellence. They are determined to succeed.

My twenty-five sixth-grade students are motivated by constant reminders that education is their key to success, not just at school, but at home and within their community.

They have the abilities and potentials to be successful in their future educational careers - and in life. Their current circumstances do not define nor determine who they can be, or what they can achieve!

Our students are grateful for all help!

My Project

Our families struggle to supply our students with proper materials for the classroom. I would love to be able to supply them with what they need. Working in pencil is great but to make a project stand out, materials are needed. We will be finishing up our math game board projects in the next couple of weeks and markers would go a long way to support this. I would love to purchase them on my own but I'm unable to buy anymore at this time. These kids really do a great job with what they have and never complain if they must go without. I hope we can give them what they need.
