My Students

My students are beautiful and brilliant. Our class consists of multi-level learners. Our school is a high-poverty, Title I school, meaning that one hundred percent of our students qualify for free or reduced-price​ lunch. A fraction of my students are homeless and many of my other students have houses or apartments they share with one or more families. Some of my students do not have a bed to sleep on. I've noticed they are hungry in the mornings and by midday. We are an extended day school where the kids stay later than a usual school dismissal time.

Our school is located in a high-poverty neighborhood.

My students work very hard every day. Our class has a ninety-eight percent attendance rate, which means the students rarely miss school. We value our learning time.

My students come from multi-ethnic backgrounds, each with distinctive cultural traditions. In our classroom, we blend our traditions to form strong community ties.

My Project

My 87 spirited brained students utilize many supplies on a daily basis. Lots of pencils, paper, and paper clips! I have 15 that are students with learning disabilities. Supplies that are in this list are needed for our classroom to function throughout the remainder of the year. They are things we go through quickly and always need more of and are the biggest price tickets that come out of my pocket. Please help my students stay prepared and ready to learn the new math. My students are the minds and citizens of tomorrow!!! Thank you for your help in giving us the supplies we need! Kindness makes the world go round.
