My Students

I will be teaching first grade for the first time! As a first grade teacher, I will be responsible for teaching multiple subjects to students of various academic levels and learning styles.

To ensure that every single student who enters my classroom is given an equal and equitable chance to be successful, I am asking for your help.

I want to create a learning environment where students have access to the tools they need to be successful.

Thank you in advance for helping me to create a magical, impactful, and successful year!

My Project

"It is today we must create the world of the future." Your donations will be used to ensure that students have a place where they feel safe and comfortable, where their needs are met, and where they can achieve new heights of success. I would like to get materials for STEM, math, and literacy.

The resources I am asking for will help me to make my classroom a fun and equitable environment where students are agents of their own learning.

I want to create a learning environment where students have access to the tools they need to be successful. My students need basic materials.
