My Students

My students are full of drive and ambition. They are excited when presented new activites to extend with their previous learning. Most of my students lack the supplies needed to complete projects at home and even in class. My school is located in a low income area and many of my students struggle just to make it to school and feel comfortable while there. I want to take that stress away from them and give them the opportunity to truly love the activites and projects needed to help them succeed in school.

My Project

All my students need and want is a reliable pencil sharpener. Right now there is no pencil sharpener in the classroom and we have to find one to use in the school. This takes time away from the students learning when we are waiting for pencils to get sharpened and delays the start of the day.

These supplies will help my students have a fresh start to the school year.

The colored dry erase markers will help many of my students when working on the mini dry erase boards to separate the problems visually when working on Math problems and projects.
