My Students

This year, I have the pleasure of teaching a great group of second grade students. They come to school eager to learn more about the world around them and ask questions about what's going on in our world.

These kiddos will come in the door ready to learn and have fun, despite their difficulties at home.

As a teacher in a Title I school, many of my students come from poverty stricken, low-income homes. Some also are learning English as a second language and others have special needs.

All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch at school. Some of my students live in a shelter or motels or are living with other families.

My students will laugh, cry, hug, giggle, play, and learn all in one place: their classroom. Therefore, I am eager and ready to help them achieve their dreams.

My Project

Color is very important to engage students and enhance their learning. Our school doesn't have the ability for teachers to print items in color, and our ability to print in black and white is limited. Recently, I received a printer from another DonorsChoose.org project. While the printer did come with ink, the middle of the school year has come, and a great many things need printing.

This ink will be used to help provide color copies and class sets of materials for my second grade class.

I have printed out beautiful color books for my students to increase our classroom library. The center games used during small groups help students to better understand concepts taught in class. We have limited funds to buy more books and paper, so this is an alternative way to gain more books. I would also like to use this ink to print books and center activities for the students to take home to be able to read and play with their families.
