My Students

I am a Media Coordinator in an amazing, small rural community school. Our school is an exciting mix of different walks of life, ethnicities, and experiences. Our students love learning and find peace and stability in the routines and expectations of the school.

In an ever-growing technological world, our students need the opportunities to grow with the changing times and be able to compete for jobs in the future that don't even exist today.

Please help open the world up further for these special students in our small rural town!

My Project

This project will help fund our growing STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics) Program at our school. These materials will be used to show our students that living in an area plagued by economic challenges doesn't have to limit anyone's future!

This will help our students grow skills that will make them competitive in the workforce later in life!

These materials will help encourage student attendance at school and the drive to achieve and work hard. These materials may also impact student's at home and build family interaction, as students become excited to talk about the amazing STEAM activities they are completing at school!
