My Students

I am fortunate to be in year three of teaching the same Giants who I have seen rise through their time in middle school. Our Giants come from Texas. Each day they come to school eager for the opportunities that lie ahead, with an abundance of school pride and a love of learning that is contagious. As founders of our school, they are dynamic leaders who day in and day out prove what it truly means to be Giants. They rise to every challenge, including being the largest ever incoming class in our district. As a founding class of unprecedented proportions, they deserve access to the tools all students need to succeed.

My Project

Our class is one where all Giants feel confident, successful, and valued. As an educator, it is my privilege to help our Giants be their best selves every day by equipping them with the tools they need to achieve their goals, however, when it comes to providing them with the classroom environment they deserve, I need your help.

Your donation will give students the print-rich, choice-filled space for them to thrive.

Cushions and chairs provide flexible seating for choice reading time, anchor chart materials will liven up our walls with helpful reminders, and organization systems will ensure that no student feels that they are starting the class one step behind because they don’t have a pencil.
