My Students

My school is a very special place where all children are supported and encouraged to do their best.

We have many students that face trauma and hardships in their daily lives.

Many of our students have behavior problems and difficulties with learning. We are working very hard to build up their self-esteem as well as teach them the high academic skills that they need for their futures.

The best part of my job is seeing my students' thrill and excitement when they have mastered a concept, or have completed a task independently. I love working with children, and they all bring joy to my life.

I want to be able to help and support them in EVERY way possible. My students love to READ books, and love to color and do arts and crafts. Many of my students can't get enough math, and still others love to express themselves through their writing.

Thank you for the opportunity for me to share a little about my wonderful students with you!

My Project

Teachers Pay Teachers has so many fun, motivating, and challenging materials to choose from. My students love the math, writing, and reading resources that I buy from there. They can find verbs in sentences, find the answer to a fun word problem, or even have their own digital journals to write their thoughts and feelings in. In order for children to not get bored with distance learning, they need choices.

I love to have fun engaging choices set up on Google Classroom to help them when we are not learning face to face in the classroom.

They even have digital "Escape Rooms" where the kids can have fun learning while answering challenging academic questions

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and not whether their materials are going to work or not. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology!
