My Students

Our school is a Title I school with a very high poverty rate. The majority of our kids participate in the free and reduced lunch program. Many of our students have already dealt with more adverse events in their short lives than some adults have encountered. Their daily lives can be tumultuous and stressful. School is a place where they can feel safe, welcomed, supported and loved. It's my job to make sure they know they are each deserving of the very best educational experience we can provide, and to help them build vision for the future.

Many of my kids face a lot of adversity in their young lives, but come to school every day eager to learn and grow.

They are resilient, creative and inspiring. My students are amazing!

My Project

We're almost to the last quarter of the school year. Supplies are running low and stress is running high! Please help us replenish essentials like scissors and glue sticks.

Help us make our classroom a calm and welcoming space.

I'm requesting several items to help kids calm themselves down and learn better self-regulation skills. School can be stressful, especially for kids in our class with sensory processing concerns. Softening the harsh florescent light by covering them creates a more soothing environment. The stress relievers and wobble cushions help kids regulate their emotions and stay focused during instruction.

Social-emotional well-being is an essential portion of our class meeting and instruction every day. Thank you so much for supporting our emotional and instructional needs!
