College Readiness- Engaging our Future

My students need assorted pennants, as an inspiration to attend college.

My Students

"Be the change you want to see in the world," Mahatma Gandhi said, and my students apply this quote in my classroom and dream big every day. However, a lot of my students need an extra push to believe that they can attend college.

My students attend a Title I school in a poverty stricken city in Florida.

A lot of my students feel like they will not be able to afford college or they feel like they are not good enough. Most of my students will be the first in their families to graduate from college. These students are very intelligent but need an extra push.

My Project

I want my students to see college pennants and read books that will help them pursue their college dreams. I am asking for pennants from colleges and universities from across the country that will inspire them. I am also asking for books that will help them craft a college admittance essay that will get them into their dream schools.

Your donation will inspire and motivate students to attend college.

Students with a college degree earn a lot more over a lifetime than students without one. Please be a spark in their lives and give to this project.
