My Students

My students are the best and I'm sure every teacher says that, but it's true! Most of my students come from low-income families and difficult home lives, school is a place where they should feel safe.

The area that my students live in is very low-income but they don't let that break their spirits.

My students are hard-working, and never back down in the face of a challenge.

My students truly deserve the best. They work extremely hard and deserve to have the best possible education and environment that other students have. Being able to provide a space for that is something I wish to achieve.

All of my students learn in different ways, and my goal is to help them in their journey to learn and be the very best that they can be.

My Project

My school holds attendance incentives and parties once a month for students to join who have perfect attendance.

These kids go through a lot in their home lives, and coming to school every day is something that definitely needs to be celebrated.

With your help, our students will have a Lego party where they can be creative, and use STEM skills to build objects from their imaginations and bring them to life. We are hoping to have a big turn out this month, so we need your help so our students can have lego bricks, kits and supplies.

Please help our students to celebrate their successes, and continue to boost their attendance!
