My Students

As a teacher in a low-income school district, my students are faced with many challenges in and out of school. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to make their experience at school fun, educational, creative, and meaningful daily.

My students are awesome!

They love coming to school and are ready to explore and adventure outside the classroom walls!!

My students love math and science. They love learning about new things. They love to explore outside and be very adventurous. With the materials requested, my students will be able to explore and adventure outside of the classroom walls. They will be able to have tools at their fingertips to gain hands-on experiences.

My Project

Math is very low performing subject in my district. The main reason is because we are lacking the materials needed to gain knowledge. The whiteboards, markers, and manipulatives requested would help my students experience hands-on learning. We all know that students do not learn the same, some are visual and hands-on learners. The items requested would make math so much fun!

The materials requested already have a "home" in the classroom.

I am excited about receiving the items and ready to put them to use. The privacy boards would allow my students to have privacy while taking quizzes. The white board circles would go on everyone's desk. The students would have access to them during instruction. Math will definitely be fun and colorful for them!
