The majority of students in our school come from a low-income area. Our school has received a grant for free breakfasts and lunches for all students. We are a rural school with students who have a limited exposure to the world beyond our small community.
Students need collaborative spaces to be able to engage in critical thinking and problem-solving activities together.
In these collaborative groups, my students learn how to communicate effectively and solve problems creatively. I want my students to be well-prepared for college and career opportunities. The more I prepare them for the future, the better our future looks.
I want to make sure that my students have all the skills that they need to be successful in life.
Katherine Johnson said, "Let me do it.
You tell me when you want it and where you want it to land, and I'll do it backwards and tell you when to take off."
Although she was talking about the landing on the moon, it really speaks to me as a teacher. I want my students to know how, why, when, where, and what they will be doing with their lives.
Will you help me encourage my students to be all that they can be? Their future can be bright, and you can help light the way with your donation.
