My Students

Students in my school are hungry for learning and experiences. We have limited opportunities for elective options that fit the needs of our students. Our population is nearly 60 percent economically disadvantaged and many have limited access to resources and technology outside the classroom (and even in the classroom).

Our students find joy in new experiences and being able to learn through 21st-century​ practices.

These are a wonderful group of students who have bright futures ahead and truly have the desire to learn.

My Project

Sometimes it’s the small things that have the most impact. The basic items that I am asking for will be used daily by my students and I. We have limited access to such materials with our classroom budget.

Having a boost in basic supply funding will help with every day learning as well as special projects.

Many of my students do not have these supplies at home so having the necessary tools in class helps when we are building learning posters, cutting out materials for assignments, and quite simply doing daily work. Your donation will have a large impact allowing my students to have all of the basic items that they need.
