My Students

My 'Little Learners' truly deserve every opportunity to thrive! Each and every one of my students is unfortunately considered "poverty stricken" and studies show that often leads to poor literacy and math skills. Well, that's why I am here; its time to break the mold!

The primary grades are where the Foundation is laid.

Without a solid start in their early schooling career, students are likely to struggle in the higher grades. Together, with your help, we can assure that my students get the best possible start to help them for years to come!

My Project

By acquiring these book sets, my students will not only be engaging in high quality literature, but they will be learning essential life skills. These are skills that are not only necessary in school, but qualities that I hope to instill in them as they grow older and become productive members of our world.

My goal is to help my students understand the importance of kindness.

If they are exposed to these wonderful stories, they will be able to take those important lessons with them. In a world filled with so much hate, teaching kindness and empathy from a young age is one way to make their future brighter.
