My Students

My students live in North Minneapolis. This part of the city has seen its fair share of challenges in terms of poverty and crime present in the community. Despite these challenges, my students are positive, determined, hard working learners. They are courageous, they are overcomers, and they are resilient.

Our student population is made up of 85% of the students receiving free or reduced price lunch.

My students are a tight knit community of learners. They are smart, capable, loving students. My children deserve every opportunity and classroom enrichment experience.

My Project

My kids work hard during the school week. They have a passion for learning and live up to the high expectations set for them day after day. They deserve to have some time to play. In our class, Friday fun is a set aside time on Friday's, where the kids can play with one another as a reward for their hard work.

Our current play time toys are old and falling apart.

Many were purchased by me at second hand stores and are on their last leg after years of use and good loving by my kids.

I would love to freshen up our selection of play stations for the kids by offering dramatic play and stem inspired centers with brand new, quality toys to help enhance the children's play time experience, teach them team work, and foster friendships in class.
