My Students

My students are the best and I'm sure every teacher says that, but it's true! Most of my students come from low-income families and difficult home lives, school is a place where they should feel safe.

The area that they live in is very low-income and they don't let that break their spirits.

My students are hard-working, and never back down in the face of a challenge.

My students truly deserve the best. They work extremely hard and deserve to have the best possible education and environment that other students have. Being able to provide a space for that is something I wish to achieve. All of my students learn in different ways, and my goal is to help them in their journey to learn and be the very best that they can be.

My Project

My students deserve a new, smooth whiteboard table to work on. My students are constantly grabbing clipboards to work at a table, and the current dots on the table just aren't big enough for them to show their work. Not only that, but all of our dry erase markers have dried up from all the use they get! Help me to help my students get new supplies of what they use every single day! Knowing how much they'll use these supplies and materials will really make their easier without constantly going back and forth to their seats to try and find a marker that works.
