My Students

My students are determined to succeed. They overcome tremendous obstacles just to show up for school each day. They come from a high poverty neighborhood in Pennsylvania. Our school is situated in a neighborhood plagued by violence. I teach grades Pre K - 8th grade. So my curriculum needs to be very diverse.

Many of the children we serve come from single-parent homes or are living with grandparents or even in foster care, but they show up ready to learn and determined to succeed.

My job is to help them reach that goal. I would love your support.

My Project

As the school year progresses our materials and supplies are running low. Its now time for the push that starts off our second part of our academic calendar. We need everything , but here are few key classroom tools that we just can't seem to get by without, for example, pens and folders! We go through 100s a year. We need post-its for note taking and labeling and tape just because we do and a stapler and staples, because somehow my class brakes staples at least twice a week. These supplies would be very helpful and truly appreciated .
