My Students

In a city known for its challenges, my primary goal is to provide my students with a safe and rigorous environment where they can take the many skills taught in the classroom to a successful future ahead.

I teach a group of 34 fourth-grade students with a combination of various special needs students mainstreamed within.

My students are a very energetic, inquisitive, and highly motivated group. They absolutely love to learn new information in a tactile and hands-on way.

One thing that sets my group of students apart is their motivation and drive to make this world a better place. They strive for change and to make a positive impact on society. At such a young age, they are already able to describe how their future actions will affect those around them. With such a positive outlook on their future, it is my duty to provide my students with enriching activities that will make them productive future scholars in society.

Through the help of DonorsChoose.org, I hope to be able to provide more learning opportunities for my students through the use of materials that are not easily accessible in public education.

My Project

One of the most important life lessons that we must teach our future Scholars is how to handle money! Many students are not used to having money and using is valuably! Most kids want to spend any small amount that they have quickly and don't put much thought into how important Financial Literacy is!

Through this project, I am going to be equipped to teach my students about be financially intelligent and wise; my students are going to be blessed with various board games that will teach them the value of using money wisely!

This project will provide my students a fun and interactive atmosphere where they can spend money through games and keep track of their spending. This project will provide games, such as Buy It Right, Monopoly, Money Bags Coin Game, Winning Moves, Net Worth, and many others! This project will not only teach my students a VERY important lesson, but will teach it through games and interacting with their peers! My students will learn through having FUN, which means they will internalize the lesson!
