My Students

“Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life.” — Nelson Mandela

Being an inner city school, most of my students belong to low income families and lack the resources needed to better their education.

My students need a help-up because many of them can not even afford basic school supplies. Despite all that they have been through recently, they want to learn. They are determined and have perseverance.

I teach science to both 7th and 12th grade. I have an inclusive classroom. This mean that I have students who have disabilities. I teach students who are in life skills, emotional support, learning support, as well as students in general education.

It would really mean a lot to us if you could help us reach our goal! Thank you!

My Project

This help will make a large impact for my students because we do not have much to teach at the moment. This is my first year teaching and I have nothing for online teaching and few things to teach in-person. I do not have anything at all to teach my 12th grade physical science and I only have a few out-dated resources for my 7th grade life science classes. I've had to make everything for my students on nights and weekends. A Teacher Pay Teacher gift card would allow me to buy materials such as worksheets, PowerPoint presentation, lab activities, and more!
