My Students

Please join me in making a better life for my students. In our district, over 36% of our families live under the federal poverty level. Many students struggle to have their needs met and many believe that they are stuck in the life they currently live.

I want my students to know that they have options, can have an amazing future and are not defined by their current circumstances.

A large percentage of my class is in foster care or lives with a family member. Many of my students have had little or no stability in their lives. Many students are moved from home to home, with few or no belongings. Many students have at least one family member who is gang affiliated or in a nearby prison. Many of these babies have stories that no child should be able to tell.

Many times school is the most stable and safe place that students know. That stability is important for student learning. If they don't feel safe, loved and have their needs met, they often have a difficult time learning. Thank you for helping them to have their needs met.

My Project

Our classroom needs a large industrial rug to keep us from slipping when the floor gets wet.

Part of our floor is tile, and when it rains, the tile get soaked and people are slipping on the floor.

We want to stay safe, so we are requesting the large rug (Ultralux Indoor Entrance Mat | 35” x 59”). We are also asking for Carpet Spot Sit Markers x 30 Classroom Circles with Numbers 1~30, so that each student has a numbered spot to sit on, and we aren't arguing over who gets to sit where. We also need two portable laptop seats, so that everyone has their own alternative seating.

Thank you for helping support our class.
