My Students

Ninety percent of our amazing students live below or near the poverty line. About sixty percent of our students are learning English in school. Sometimes our school struggles to get the resources we need to teach and care for our incredible students. This makes the job of a school even more important.

Many of our students experience poverty, but that's just where they are starting.

Our students love to create art and read. They write computer code and even perform Shakespeare. They have big dreams, but they need to work hard now. Help them reach for those dreams!

My Project

My students need exciting and challenging books to get them excited about reading every day! Your generosity will put these books into the hands of our students. All of these books are about topics that interest my students. They won't be able to put them down because they love reading about spiders, animals, and characters just like them! When kids get excited about books, there is no stopping them!

Our students love to read, but we don't have books to help them explore their interests.

Let's fix that! Your generosity will put books in their hands. These books will be placed in our classroom library, and kids will be able to choose them to read independently. Your gift will inspire them to read, learn, and take over the world!
