My Students

I teach in an extremely socioeconomically disadvantaged school. Over 99% of our students receive free school lunch and many of the students come to school lacking materials for them to succeed. My students are super hardworking and they strive to obtain success even given the obstacles that they are dealt with. They actively participate, enjoy hands-on learning, and each has personal goals that they’re working towards. These same kiddos know that they have to work hard in school to better their lives in the future.

My Project

My students come from a socioeconomically disadvantaged area and come to school with little more than the clothes on their backs. These same students crave success and strive to do their best daily.

Things like the requested paint, paintbrushes, and canvases will allow my students to express themselves while they learn the valuable curriculum.

If students are given the opportunity to be creative, learning will be fun and students will succeed. By having these materials, the children will be able to learn the curriculum in different ways, so that I can meet the needs of all learning styles.

Please help my students learn. I want to instill a love of learning in all my students. I feel that once students find that joy, they are better destined for success.

These materials would mean the most to them. Any donation is appreciated and every item will be used with care and appreciation. Every item will be used with care and will be super appreciated.

Please help my students!
