My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with challenges but come school each and every day ready to learn and experience new ideas. My students are loving, caring, and value their relationship with their teachers and our school. It is important to have the ability to provide as many resources as I can, because at home most students do not have that support or materials. My students are readers, researchers, writers, mathematicians, and scientists, who are on the road to success but need the resources to help get there!

My students know that our school is a place where everyone is cared about, and they need to work hard.

It is my goal this year to give students a place where they can shine, enjoy reading and do their absolute best work!

My Project

We love reading throughout the room as we learn. It is more inviting and engaging to have a colorful and fun place to read.

We need a rug where we can sit and enjoy our books.

The donations to this project will help to improve my students' love of reading. We need our own space to comfortably sit on the floor. We do so many activities on the floor, and we need a clean, comfortable space to work. Having a small book display will allow the students to easily choose books for holidays and various subjects.
