My Students

My students are very inquisitive. They are always asking questions and wanting to know why? I want to be able to help them figure out why and answer their questions. They have the desire to learn and are compassionate about doing so.

My students are ready and eager to learn.

They come to me with open minds, ready to soak up everything they can. They are the reason I do what I do, which gives them many opportunities to be anything they want to be. My students are awesome! I want to help them as much as I possibly can.

I teach at a Title I school. The majority of the students receive free or reduced priced breakfast/lunch. Most of my students are from low-income homes. Some move around a lot or live with relatives. School is the only stable environment that some of them have. They want to learn and do better.

My Project

It never fails, after the holiday break we seem to be running low on our basic supplies. We are in need of Westcott scissors and caddy, School Smart colored crayon pencils, Elmers glue, and Ticonderoga pencils.

Our school is a Title 1 school and a majority of the students come in with very few needed school supplies.

I purchase a lot of materials myself.

I teach Math and Science. We use scissors, glue, crayon pencils, and regular pencils all of the time. We keep notebooks for each subject. The children use the math notebooks as a reference guide to their daily math lessons. We are always cutting things out and gluing items in to our notebooks. Our science notebooks is the same way.

The Westcott scissors and caddy, Elmers glue, School Smart crayon pencils and Ticonderoga pencils are essential to our learning. I want to provide my students with everything they need in order to better their education. Help me give my students the absolute best education!
