My Students

I have been blessed to work with an amazing group of kindergarten and first grade students this school year. Their drive and determination have only inspired me to provide them with the best possible education that I can.

Our school is a Title I school and has many students that are considered low-income.

Even with all of the challenges and hurdles the students face, the students come to school ready and excited to learn. This is just one of the many reasons that I want to make sure my students get the best education that they can and provide as many resources to help them succeed.

My Project

The hardcover blank books would further enrich our curriculum in many beneficial ways. Students would be able to practice the writing process from a rough draft to finished product with the help of these books. The hardcover books would provide an opportunity for students to express themselves through creative writing.

The students will not only be engaged with this project, but it will allow students to take ownership and pride in their work.

My students love to read and write. With your donation, my students will be authors, illustrators, and editors. Help me give my students an opportunity for practicing their writing process and creating a keepsake.
