My Students

A Chinese Proverb said, " A child is like a piece of paper on which every person leaves a mark." With this project, I am giving all readers an opportunity to leave a good mark on the life of over 140 students that I serve daily.

As teachers, we don't usually have the necessary tools to properly reach our learners.

We want them to learn, despite the daily challenges we face. I hope this posting will encourage you to embrace my journey to put the right tools in my students' hands so that they could be successful learners and become productive citizens.

My Project

It is becoming more and more challenging to help students grasp the basic concepts in mathematics. The necessary tools are missing. Thus, having these basic supplies in place will enhance student's active participation and increase learning.

I always wanted to engage my students in meaningful projects, but the task is almost impossible when students don't have the necessary tools.

During the upcoming months, I will be engaging my students in very complex geometric constructions, and they are desperately in need of geometric tools, paper, and colored pencils to achieve. Please help me by funding this project or any portion of it to put the right tools in my students' hands to complete the job.
