My Students

I have a great second-grade class made up of bilingual students, non-LEP students, special needs students, and Spanish speakers who are truly eager to learn.

Our school is located in a very low-income​ area at the tip of Texas, right by the border wall.

I am highly inspired by my little bunch of happy, hyper, and exciting children, and I am always out trying to get them everything they need to make their learning as easy and engaging as possible. I love my students!

My Project

The new school year has just begun and I would like to keep our classroom as clean as possible. A clean classroom will prevent my students from becoming ill from germs and dust.

Clorox wipes and vacuum cleaners will definitely help keep the germs and dust away.

We do have breakfast in the classroom; therefore we do need plenty of Clorox wipes to clean our tables. We also need the upright Eureka vacuum to keep our carpets clean and free of crumbs. In addition the Black & Decker Dustbuster will help us keep our computers free of dust. Please help us keep our classroom clean.
