My Students

My students come from all across our county. Every student comes to school with various items - some with what they need and some without. I have a classroom stocked with extra supplies from paper to binders, so that everyone is on the same playing field. Students should not be chastised for not having materials at school - for whatever reason. It is my goal that students, no questions asked, have what they need in order to be successful. In order to ensure their success, we need your help!

My Project

Have you ever been uninspired by the boring white paper in front of you? I know for sure I have. I am requesting materials that will help my students add life to their assignments and spark their creativity. These materials will make a difference in my students' learning as they will be able to use materials that they may not otherwise have access to. They will be able to use markers, highlighters, and colored pencils to illustrate their projects, learn annotation strategies, and add so much more to their assignments! My classroom is vibrant, my students are vibrant, and together, with these tools, our products will be vibrant.
