My Students

My students come from all walks of life and almost all of them are in the minority according to the world. However, they are their own majority and many have the drive to succeed.

Our school is a community and generational school with strong ties to the community and churches.

Our school is a work in progress and strives to keep up with the advancements of the world. In order to accomplish greater things, my students need certain materials to get them to the next level.

My Project

I browse and used teacher-created materials from Teachers Pay Teachers for many years now. I appreciate being able to support other teachers from around the country by purchasing their original lessons/units/documents to use in my classroom.

Less preparation time for me to use means that I get more time to spend with my students IN class.

Not having to worry about the ability to afford or to invest in certain material for the school year will take a huge burden off of my chest, and will allow me to put more focus on the needs of my students.
