My Students

I teach fourth grade at a Title I school in Central Florida. I teach reading, language arts, and social studies to 45 students. I have students who come from a variety of social, behavioral and emotional backgrounds.

Very few students come to school prepared with the necessary materials; I want all of my students to have the needed supplies to be successful.

My students will use these materials daily and they will be taken care of. Without your help, my students would not have these binders to store their work, data tracking and goal tracking in.

My Project

This project will supply all of my fourth-grade​ students with 2" binders that they will need to store all of their math, science and reading work as well as their paperwork to track their academic and personal goals.

Each year only a handful of students come equipped with the needed supplies.

Not only are students embarrassed because they do not have the needed materials but they also feel unprepared which negatively affects their learning experience. These resources will change my students' lives for the better because it will provide them with the basic learning tools they need for school. With these resources, my students will be able to participate in their daily lessons and be successful!
