My Students

My students show up everyday excited to learn. For many this is their safe haven. More than half of our school population receives free breakfast, lunch and second lunch.

My students find my classroom to be their safe place.

I want to give them the tools that they need to be successful everyday. I want them to become successful adults with careers in which they can support themselves and their family.

The students are here 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week. I want to give them every educational opportunity despite their parents income levels.

My Project

Many of my third grade students are reading on a first grade level. I am sure you can imagine the frustration they face on a day to day basis when they need to read questions and answer them. The OSMO and a 32GB iPad will allow them to work on their sight words and inspire them to find their love of reading.

I want my students to be successful despite the hardships they face outside of school.

They arrive bright eyed and excited to learn new things each and every day. It is important that they know somebody cares about them and their well being.

Our community was affected by Hurricane Harvey.
