My Students

As the new school year begins, new students with different personalities and different situations come into my class but one thing never changes and that is students who may need for writing tools. Do you remember the times you needed a pen or notebook and you didn't have one for whatever reason, but your teacher provided? Supplies like notebooks, paper, pens, erasers, and pencils are needed for the new school year, especially for those who may not have.

Our students are determined, ambitious, intelligent young people who are excited to embrace a new school year.

Our school is a small middle school with a population of students who need necessary supplies, support, and encouragement to help them be successful.

My Project

The materials requested are 3 subject composition notebooks for class. As the new school year begins, it is imperative for students to have all the required materials so they can be productive. Some times students do not get their materials 2 to 4 weeks into the school year.

When the materials are provided for the students, they are all able to start the new year on the same track together.

These are special notebooks for our new curriculum that requires 3 sections or notebooks. These specially designed 3 subject notebooks help to support the students and keep them organized and focused.
