My Students

What do I love about my students? They are kind-hearted, sweet, and want to be loved. These kids come from homes that do not get all of the love and attention that they deserve. These students want to be successful and work so hard to achieve their goals. They are determined to please the people around them. They are special to me because their stories will pull your heart strings and you will get attached quickly. These students are my whole world.

My Project

This school year we were constantly running out of the basic materials. Without the basic needs, we were not able to complete most of the projects I had planned. This next school year I would like to make sure this doesn't happen. Also, my students love and appreciate brand new materials and objects to help with their creative needs. They never complain about their projects not being good enough. This year I had a lot of artistic children, every time they had a free moment they were drawing or coloring. I want to make sure that I keep these kids happy by having the resources they need.
