My Students

The students at our school are one-of-a-kind. They love school just as much as the next child. I need to do all I can, during school hours, to help these students progress to well-developed, smart young men and women. To effectively teach students in a wide range of levels, I need many resources. Help me bring in the necessary materials to help my students succeed in school.

The majority of the students at the school come from low-economical households.

Students and parents do not have the financial means to provide essentials. Since Hurricane Irma and Maria, things have become even tighter for parents.

My Project

Hurricane Irma and Maria has put a damper on the energy and efforts of many in the community and in my students. Now we are getting displaced students from Hurricane Maria. They come to school distracted, and as a teacher, it is my job to make sure they are getting the best education possible.

I will like to have fun interactive STEAM activities my students can do without the worry of having to buy any of the supplies needed to complete it.

Discovering STEM kits, interactive globes, and STEAM activities books. Having access to these materials will help my students that do not speak English learn by doing. The can build things with their hands, or go to a different country just with a click of a button using the interactive globes. Help me bring science to life and help my students learn in a fun and interesting way by providing these supplies.
