My Students

When I think about going to school, I think about tons of textbooks, hours of research in the library, and a lot of frustration from not actually finding what I need. My goal this year is to provide my students with anything and everything they will need to be successful. For the first time, my students will be tested online in Math. The unfortunate part is these students do not have the technology resources available to practice and get comfortable .

Our students come from low-income households that require them to take on a lot more than any 8-year-old should have to.

This year because of Hurricane Maria, I have also received many students from Puerto Rico. Because of the daily struggles my students face, I want them to feel like the only thing they have to worry about is being the best student they can be. I want them to feel like they are ready for anything and everything that is thrown at them. I don't want them to look back and feel like their elementary years were frustrating and unfair because the expectations were too high to reach.

My Project

This year we have received many new students from many different places, which has maxed out our classrooms. This is such great news EXCEPT we have no where to put all of their stuff. We need shelves to help get these students organized and ready to be successful. These shelves can be used for supplies, manipulatives, games, technology, etc. With your help my students will know what they have to use and where it is located so they can be successful. Organization shelves help students to learn routines, respect for supplies, and how to keep things organized. Thank you for your support!
