My Students

I teach 28 third-grade students in a bilingual, low-income school in Chicago Public Schools. I am a lucky teacher in that each one of my students is interested and eager to learn. We need a printer to be able to print activities that reinforce learned concepts.

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” -- William Butler Yeats Our class has developed an incredible attitude that we all are learners and teachers.

Each student comes to my class with the opportunity and responsibility to learn and share learning with others in the class. Though they come from very meager backgrounds (mostly low-income and limited opportunity), they are willing to work together to achieve amazing things. With your help, we will be able to bring these deserving students a tool necessary for classroom success. Help me light a fire within each one of my students!

My Project

“Practice makes perfect!” – My mother One desire I have for my students is to create a stronger home-school connection. My students will increase their reading, writing, and math skills by using worksheets that reinforce classroom concepts. Having exposure to concepts via activities completed at home will better their chances of learning success. As a teacher, my duty is to make sure that students are provided an environment where learning can be accomplished (both in school and at home). Due to budget cuts, last year our school eliminated all copies. This made learning difficult as my students spent a lot of time copying things instead of engaging in more meaningful tasks. Also, some activities were impossible to copy down, limiting their learning potential. We need a printer for our classroom to be able to print off supplemental activities that can be completed at home or in the classroom. With practice, my students will become perfect!

Your donation will give my students the resources that they need to achieve their learning goals.

With your help, Dr. Seuss’ quote will come true: “The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.” I have great hopes and expectations that my students will go farther and reach higher in life! Thanks to you, this will become even more of a reality.
