My Students

I teach in an urban charter network in which 100 percent of the students come from low income families. My students have big dreams for the post-high school lives, but they do not have access to all of the resources that they need to succeed. In my classroom are potential future politicians, lawyers, artists, doctors, and scientists, but they all need to learn how to make the jump from high school to their future career.

As their teacher, I feel that it is my responsibility to provide them with the tools that they need to acquire the skills necessary for admission and success in college and beyond.

My Project

I want to procure basic supplies for my students to use in my classroom that they would typically purchase through their own families' funds. In my years as an urban educator, it has become clear to me that my students typically do not have access to technology, organizational supplies, creative materials and more at home. I want to be able to provide things like printer access, binders/folders, notebooks, writing implements, and art supplies in my classroom.

I want my students to be able to print out a resume and cover letter that they can use to apply to jobs with the ink I am requesting.

I want them to be able to take notes in a notebook and keep track of class materials in a binder. We need printer ink, posters, markers, colored paper and other basic materials.
