My Students

My students try. I have many types of students. The area where my school is contains a number of choices for school. People of a higher economic ability have more choices. Our school accepts everyone, so those who have the ability to take advantage of a choice go somewhere that everyone is not accepted. My kids try. I commend them for that and want to make it easier to take advantage of something that they deserve. I want to help in any way I can.

My Project

Pens and notebooks are used in my class every day. it's not hard to keep up with such things for people in great situations. Most of the kids I get aren't in those situations. If I could help them not have to worry about having either item, that would be huge. I like to give them a nice post-it note every now and then. Motivation for them, and insight for me on helping with making good people of them.

Helping remove obstacles to help keep them from being overwhelmed is a big deal.

All kids need education and to feel loved. all these supplies will help.
