My Students

My students are really lovely kids; hardworking, funny, and bright. They live in a very disadvantaged community, where resources are scarce and teachers have to work really hard to acquire supplies and plan enrichment activities.

My students do their best to comply with all that we require of them, which means a large amount of test prep and a small amount of recess.

As their teacher, I owe it to them to try to bring fun and creativity to our school year to the best of my abilities.

Many of my students have special needs, ranging from learning differences to emotional disturbances, and it's important to me to make learning fun and enjoyable for them.

My Project

The students in my loom knitting club are off to a great start, knitting hats and scarves and other fun projects. I taught them several different knit stitches, plus the purl stitch, and how to cast on and bind off. They tore through my stash of yarn and will soon be ready for more!

The yarn I'm requesting is very soft and easy to work with, and my students will be able to make wonderful projects for friends and family, and to donate to charity.

I am requesting yarn in many different colors so students have more of a choice when starting their projects.
