My Students

"I grew two levels!" a student exclaimed. Students cannot wait to share their growth with their peers and teachers at our school. Our students attend a zoned school in east Nashville where 100% of students receive free lunch. All students walk or are driven to school, and parents and families are eager to be a part of our community!

My students are full of love!

I cannot wait to see each of their faces in the morning. Every day, we start with literacy centers, go to specials (yoga, gym, music, or math intervention), whole group reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. Every day, they grow socially and academically to be their best selves.

My Project

My first project was already funded! Let's keep it going...

Please help me buy snacks for my new class!

We start school on August 5th and I’d love to have some snacks as soon as possible so that students don’t get hungry mid-morning. Our school has 100% of the population receiving a free lunch and breakfast. When students have snacks I can supply alternatives to breakfast and lunch choices supplied by the school. I can also give a snack in the morning to motivate students to work hard and grow their brains. It also helps with joy and their love of learning. Please help me provide my students with snacks! No kid should have to be hungry.
