My Students

My students live in a high poverty, farming community, have multiple siblings and are English Language Learners. If supplies are needed, the local Dollar Store is the one place with anything for the entire town. It is a blessing if my students enter class with a sharpened pencil, eraser and paper from day to day.

Despite uncontrollable financial woes, my students are still my children.

They are eager, excited learners, and I want to facilitate their learning to the best of my ability.

My Project

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller

My students need classroom tables that will be more conducive for cooperative learning groups.

The requested tables will replace the old, worn, mismatched desks we currently have.These tables will provide my students with a better setting so they can learn how groups function productively. Students will be able to contribute to the group interaction, support each other, and deliver good work. Providing my students with these tables will enable them to work in groups. They will be more productive, creative, and motivated than individuals on their own.
