My Students

My students are amazing and talented young children. They are second graders who have a wonderful thirst for knowledge and learning about the world outside of their community. These students come from a Title I school, meaning that they are from low income homes.

My students deserve the fair chance that all other students get with materials and special school supplies.

Donating to my students would be donating to help better their education for now as well as their future.

My Project

With testing season on the horizon, I want to bring play back into the classroom. In order to do this, I have started having morning bins where students are able to play freely with materials in each box.

Kids need time to play and talk with each other.

This cuts down on so many behavior issues that we see in the classroom. In this project, I am asking for items to go in these morning baskets, such as play dough, puzzles, markers, and diverse books to be added to our library for them to read in the mornings.
