My Students

I am a first-grade teacher at a very special Title I school. It is a public school that is a partial magnet which means we serve the neighborhood population as well as students interested in learning in a Spanish immersion environment. I teach 40 amazing, challenging, intelligent, deserving students who come from diverse backgrounds.

Our school community truly comes together to support the development of the whole child.

We believe each child has enormous potential and deserves the world. We promote diversity, inclusion, curiosity, and acceptance. Our curriculum is rigorous, but the students are up to the challenge and set high goals for themselves. The pride they take in their successes is amazing to see.

My Project

We are so fortunate to be at a brand new school building this year. However, that means we are starting fresh ith limited supplies. Our playground is pretty small to accomodate 120 children at once. Our students (and us teachers!) are desperate for some other recess equipment to help facilitate our student's getting their energy out and learning through movement and play.

These balls will help our students learn teamwork and the importance of physical activity.

I so believe in the importance of every child feeling successful at school and this gives many children an opportunity to feel successful through sports where they might be struggling in other areas of school. We would be so appreciative in any donation that would help us fund this important project for our scholars. Thank you!
