My Students

I always say that no two children are alike. I love that each student is my classroom has a unique personality that makes them who they are. I love that moment when those little light bulbs inside their heads come on. It is absolutely amazing.

I want to create an environment so my students can become more independent and expand their little minds into a whole new world of learning and thinking.

Many of my students come from a low-income household. The resources I have requested will enrich my first-grade students​ while helping them advance their education this school year. Help my students so they can turn their lights on!

My Project

My first graders are so eager to learn. Please help me give them material to create hands-on learning experiences that will expand their thinking and provided memories that will last a lifetime.

Help give my students hands-on STEM learning that will create memorable experiences that last!

STEM kits will be used to for creative hands on learning that promote higher order thinking and problem solving. The storage container will help keep them organized and provide easy access to students. Alternative seating and chairs will allow students to become more productive and gives them choices in their learning environment. All of the materials will help grow my students in school and life from the very first day they are received and for many years to come!
