My Students

I teach ELL (English Language Learner) students in an urban community where they have so much joy in learning and constantly experiencing life as they know it. ELLs must overcome many challenges, including limited schooling, trauma, and poverty. Some ELLs come from countries where education is not mandated.

There are ELLs who travel and are constantly moving from one school to another.

There are also ELLs who may attend school in their native country, but the quality of education is less than in the United States. I am also a middle school cheerleading coach.

My Project

As our school year is rapidly winding down, we are preparing to celebrate our seniors' accomplishments and send them off into the world. I will have a celebration at the end of the year, honoring our students. I would love to present each graduate with a small gift to celebrate their graduation.

I would like to give lanyards to all students.

3 Amazon Fire tablets, and 3 Echo Dots to our top honor graduates. We've spent years preparing them for college, now we would like to provide them with some practical items to ease their transition. We have no budget allotted for gifts for our students, so we would love your help in obtaining items for some very deserving kids. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
