My Students

My students are an incredible bunch of people and wonderful students. They come from a very tough and very poor neighborhood, (in fact, the poorest Congressional district in the country), but this has not stopped them from being incredibly sweet, generous, and caring people.

Only 1% of our school's parents have a college education, but I know for a fact that my students are well on their way to attending college in the future.

It is a testament to their great attitude and tough skin. They are humble and take nothing for granted, but give so much back through the people they are.

My Project

I have selected one copy of all 78 volumes of the popular Japanese anime series, Naruto. The anime books I do have in class not only fly off the shelves, and they have waiting lists! If these resources somehow make themselves to my classroom, it will bring a true, real smile to the faces of my students. I know, because I have have experienced it, that students will be lining up to sign out that new book they have heard all about. As I have seen first hand, this reading material is tremendously valuable, especially to English Language Learners. Many of my students are ELL students, with primarily Spanish being spoken at home. This reading material will help build their literacy ability, which also makes them much more capable to understand required school reading. As an educator, there is nothing greater than providing a student with a learning opportunity that they want to experience for themselves.

Without the donors who are continually gracious, many students would not have the learning opportunities they do.

Donors have made it possible to bring a richer learning opportunity into so many classes, making students have a memorable experience. My students love to learn and read. They are always interested, always asking questions, always looking for more. With your donation, they will get that and a lot more. My students will have a chance to extend their learning and love of reading.
