When my students leave my class, my deepest hope is that they are better people than they were before! I teach 35 4th grade students in a rural community in Northeast Wisconsin. My students have BIG hopes and dreams and they work hard to achieve them! Helping them become global citizens is very important to me! Providing them with opportunities to learn beyond our four walls is why I joined DonorsChoose!
My classroom is a diverse place!
Each one of my students has such an amazing life story! They are the future and it is my mission to provide them with all of the skills they need to pursue any life path they choose! Your support is appreciated more than words can express! Thank you for believing in kids!
I believe in the power of holding a text in your hands with information that motivates and inspires you to make a positive impact on your world! My students are creative, innovative thinkers that need background knowledge about the world around them so that they can find how they can best use their talents and skills as a global citizen.
Providing texts that represent diverse people and places allows my students to see their story in others.
This develops empathy and a sense of responsibility for the future of our country and planet. Empowering students to be aware of what is happening globally is important to me! They have so much to offer this world and a unique purpose they are here to fulfill!
