My Students

My students are extremely special because they all have unique qualities to make you smile. They are loving individuals who have learning disabilities which makes learning and school difficult for them. They all come from low-income homes, and for some, English is their second language. However, they all come to school ready to learn, to take chances, and to slowly achieve their educational goals.

My students inspire me day after day with their amazing love, uniqueness, and strength to push past their educational barriers.

Great things DO come in small packages!

My Project

My students need a working electric pencil sharpener. Our electric sharpener just stopped working and it's only the beginning of the year. Having an electric pencil sharpener in a classroom is a "must-have". We would also like other materials such as; scissors, a paper cutter and a book stapler to use when we make our own books or when we copy books online to use in our reading groups.

My students are also in desperate need of their own headphones.

We require them to have headphones to use while they are reading, listening to a story or while they are taking a test on a device. However, when headphones break or get lost we don't have any extra ones to replace them. So having new headphones for each of my students would be a great gift to us.
