My Students

Students at my school are hard-working, dedicated, and strive to succeed in all areas of their lives! Our school is in a poverty-stricken city, but you wouldn't know it by these amazing students! All of the students in our school receive free breakfast and lunch from school.

My students deserve a high-quality education, and that is what I strive to provide them.

With your generosity and support over the years, my classroom is a place where students enjoy coming year after year. These students are always reaching higher and striving to achieve their dreams. Please consider helping me provide them with the best education possible.

My Project

Have you ever tried to learn to play on an instrument that is broken? Sadly, this is the way some of our students must learn because of our outdated and broken keyboards.

My students deserve to learn on equipment that functions properly and will give them the best learning experience.

Not only will these new keyboards be used to update to better technology, they will also allow more students to take piano class at one time. My students are so excited to be learning keyboard that they are always willing to work with materials that are sub-par. They shouldn't have to! Please consider making a donation to improve the quality of education my students are able to receive.
