My Students

My students are adventurous fourth, fifth, and sixth-grade students. They work diligently to overcome the challenges of their disabilities and strive to be their best. They challenge me daily, and I enjoy finding ways to help them. Teaching multiple grade levels to students who are at, below, and above grade level and adjusting my teaching to meet their social and emotional needs, is demanding and rewarding at the same time.

Nearly all of my students are from low-income households and are transported to our school from all parts of our school district.

Luckily, my school community is very supportive and encouraging. When people say, "It takes a village...," I have learned that it truly takes a village in order to meet the needs of every student in my classroom. For this reason, I do my best to be creative to provide them what they need and to make our classroom a positive learning environment. DonorsChoose.org and supporters allow me to get closer to meeting the needs of every student I come in contact with because I try to help all students at my school not just those in my classroom.

My Project

Our current outdoor field has been closed due to the new grass being grown to make our field more level and safer for students to run on and enjoy. Our students are excited to use the new field and get out there to play. We currently do not have soccer goals, flags to determine which team your on, and soccer or footballs that are in good condition.

Our students have missed using the field and are eager to get out there and be physically active.

That is why this project is so important! We need new equipment to play futbol (soccer) and football.
