My Students

My students are the kindest, most determined, hardest working people I know. Many of them face great adversity in their homes, and in their daily lives, yet they come to school each day willing to learn and to do their best. I love my students more than I can explain, and once they have been in my class they are forever "my kids."

Because of my love for my students, I'm tough on them, but they rise to each and every challenge set before them.

They are tough, strong-willed, and determined, and I'm so lucky to get to spend every day with them!

My Project

Please help my students get some of the essential supplies we need to succeed.

We need a new stapler, since our staplers are constantly jamming and breaking; we need board markers, cleaning wipes, and erasers to aid us in our learning; and we need other classroom essentials like scissors, pens, tape, highlighters, Sharpies, and paper to help with our classroom projects.

At this time of year, we tend to run low on important supplies, and this year is not any different. We need help replacing and replenishing some of our most used supplies for our classroom! Please help us succeed!
