My Students

Our middle school is set in the beautiful WV mountains. Although it is picturesque, our students live in a rural area without many opportunities. Books are a great way to give our students different experiences and perspectives. I love encouraging students' love of reading through exposing them to quality literature.

Our students come to us with a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds and family situations - my goal is to provide every student with the same access to quality literature.

Many students may not have a plethora of materials or resources at home. We avoid asking parents for donations because it can put a strain on some families. Instead, we try to do creative fundraisers to raise the funds needed for other lessons and projects. To this end, I would like for my students to be involved on the creative end of the fundraisers - as well as the financial ends of selling and profits. We hope to purchase items that will allow us to create products we can then sell for a fundraising profit for our classes/groups.

My Project

This project will give the students the materials they need to be creative and innovative. They will design materials to be used for fundraising opportunities. The funds generated from fundraising can then be used to purchase items needed for our career exploration classes that are offered 3 times a week to students.

These materials will promote the learning of a type of graphic design.

Students will see an idea materialize through their own efforts and planning. This will facilitate real-life research, marketing, and finance lessons. I am excited for the opportunities for learning and fun this project will provide my students.
