My Students

My students attend an urban comprehensive High School in Southeastern Wisconsin that has an Alternative Education Program. Many of which are students that in reside low income households, where one or both of their parents may be under or unemployed.

More than 75% of our student population receive free or reduced cost lunch.

All of my students are overage and under credited needing an opportunity to show their full potential. They are extremely creative, energetic, and fun! We have a busy classroom full of activity. Although we receive some resources such as paper, pencils, and notebooks, we often don't receive all the necessary supplies needed for student success.

My Project

Student led workgroups, partner activities, and differentiated learning activities are just a few of the things that I have planned for the material that I have requested for my students. I just need some assistance in giving these items a new home with us.

By donating to our project you can change the course and direction that many of my students were heading.

McGraw Hill four content area workbooks and Barron's GED flash cards will improve their chances of successfully completing their exams, thereby allowing them to obtain their dream of high school graduation. Some will be the first in their family to graduate high school. What is most important is my students will now have plans for their future, where previously there were none. Because they will be able to obtain a goal, that they never even knew they had.

For many young people, graduating from high school is just a small activity in their overall life plan, but for my students, it is life changing.
