My Students

Welcome to our school! We are a low income/high poverty school that is filled with families from around the world. More than 80% of the students here receive free breakfast and lunch each day they are in school. It is not uncommon to replace a pair of tennis shoes, provide a backpack or coat, or send home a bag of food for our students to eat over the weekend.

Despite the challenges my students face, they come to school in happy spirits ready to conquer the world each and every day.

I try to always show my students that with hard work and determination they can be and do anything they want. In our classroom we are a family and we encourage each other to do our best and be the best we can be.

My Project

These expo markers will help the students to gain more knowledge in math and language arts. They will use the markers in groups, individually, and as an entire class. The children need to be prepared to learn about reading and math in a very competitive world. The supplies will help the kids be more productive members of society. The students will be more prepared in an ever changing technological society.

The expo markers will help the children to more successful in school.

The markers will help the kids increase their knowledge of math and reading. Math and reading essential to know to be successful in life.
