My Students

My students have been mine since Kindergarten, except for 2nd grade when they had a new teacher. They are lovely students, studious, generous, and hard-working. Even though they come from an area that is economically disadvantaged, they tend to overcome any obstacle in their way to put their studies first.

I have a student who takes care of her brothers and sisters after school, yet always has time to complete her homework and is a wonderful student who excels in all subjects.

I have a student whose father just left the family, and that just led the student to write his first composition where his voice was heard.

My students may not be the ones with the new shoes or backpack at the beginning of the year, but let me assure you, they are the ones with the intense desire to learn.

My Project

Reading is essential throughout all the school years. These book series sets will motivate students to read, read, and read! All the other materials like the microphones, markers and pencil sharpener will help my students have a more fulfilling classroom where materials are not scarce, but plentiful.

This project will also enable me to provide all my students equitable amounts of materials without me having to be worried about something missing, or that it might run out.

They will use all these materials to bring out their creativity, their passion for speaking in public and become strong collaborators in their education. For example, every three weeks we have a new project created with the new HMH adoption the district recently acquired. The project requires paper, expos, and research which I am requesting.

Students always come first! Anything to make their education path run smoothly is always the goal!
