My Students

My students are amazing. They are eager to learn and soak up everything I give them. My students come from diverse backgrounds and everyone brings something unique to our classroom. They love exploring new ideas and new ways of thinking about things. They are always happy and they always challenge me to be a better teacher.

My students are hard workers and work daily towards their goals of being the best they can be no matter the challenges they face.

They give their all in everything they do, in and out of the classroom.

My Project

The majority of my students live in poverty. Our school district provides some supplies to take the burden off of families that cannot afford them. These are just start up supplies and will not last the entire school year.

My students deserve to have proper supplies to carryout daily activities in the classroom.

They love when we have opportunities to incorporate art in our lessons and these supplies would give me the opportunity to provide more art inspired lessons.

Kids shouldn't have to feel the stress of not having materials for class. Providing these items will take away that stress so we can focus on learning.
