My Students

“ It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge. " ― Albert Einstein

This is my lifelong goal as a first grade teacher.

I want to be able to give them the best education I possibly can. I come to work everyday with new ideas and challenges and I conquer them to the best of my ability. I love my job and I love seeing the smiles on my students faces everyday. With a little help from donors, I can make some of their biggest wishes come true! Thank you!

My Project

With the new school year starting we need a few basic items to get us started on the right foot.

We need new bouncy balls for the playground that are safe for the kids and cart to transport them from the classroom to the playground.

The kids love to get all their energy out on the playground and having a good amount of balls with help them all have fun outside.

The crayons will be used to bring our work to life. My students love to color with many different colors ad they will help keep their creative energy flowing.

We also need an electric pencil sharpener and charging cables.
