My Students

My school is a large Title I school where eighty percent of the students live below the poverty line. My students are academically and economically diverse. Many of them face situations that no child should ever face, like being temporarily homeless. Yet, they are also hardworking, enthusiastic young people full of potential and possibilities. They have lots of life and energy.

They love to learn, especially in new and exciting ways, and they recognize that they are part of a larger, generous community.

Please consider helping me to make this their best year ever!

My Project

Keeping our classroom clean is a real struggle. There is constantly dust on every surface, and you can imagine the germs that exist. Therefore my goal with this project is to keep our room and my students as clean and germ free as possible. Thus I am seeking two new trash cans with trash bags, so that we can empty our trash daily and will have a new bag to place in the cans. I am also desiring Clorox wipes so that students' desks can be wiped down at least once a week. I would love dusters that can be used on the window ledges as well as computers. Finally, I would like a mop so that our floors can be mopped once a week. Keeping our classroom clean is an ongoing battle but with your help, I know we can do a better job. Thanks!
