My Students

HDC Elementary School is a 100% free and reduced-price lunch, Pre-K-3 through 5th grade school, at the heart of Washington, DC in Adams Morgan. This school year, I teach Kindergarten and 1st grade Reading Intervention to a group of focused and motivated students, who despite disadvantages, work hard to catch up in literacy, rising above the challenges of disabilities, language delays and more.

We push through challenges in reading and life as a team, struggling often, celebrating always, and above all, never giving up.

My students are so thankful and appreciative of having access to supplies in the classroom which further support their success this school year.

My Project

After a change of schools, we are setting up our new Kindergarten/First Grade reading resource room for students who need extra attention in literacy. Help us make the space feel like home by adding some light with new lamps and light bulbs. Then, for the students to feel like it's their space, help bring us an instant camera and film for students to post their pictures in the room. Additionally, we need printer ink to ensure that all of the paper resources that we need this year can be printed. Finally, support us in our organization with a few jars and pencil cases.
