My Students

I have 29 amazing students! Many of my students are refugees from all around the world. 90 percent of my students live in poverty. We are a diverse group, who love learning, our community school, reading books, learning American history, reading novels and making connections.

Our favorite thing is to play soccer and incorporate it into our learning!!

We are an active group of learners who have a growth mindset and love learning. Thank you so much for considering our classroom.

My Project

We have limited room for our books! We need a book storage bin for all our amazing readers! Reading is our favorite thing to do in our classroom... And talk about the books we read.

Our kids LOVE to read, but we really need a place to put our books!

We have too many books and kids that love to read them. A great problem to have! But, we need a place to put them.

Please help us fundraise for a mobile travel cart that we can cart around the room and make space for our reading! Thank you!
