My Students

My students are bright and have a lot of potential! They are 6th through 8th grade and love to be successful in all that they do. One of the reason why I love coming to school everyday, is to see the smiling faces of my students as they come prepared to work hard and make me proud.

We are a Title 1, low income school, but my students do not let that define them or hold them back.

They share there dreams and accomplishments with me and I am often shocked by how far these kids want to go in life and what they want to achieve. I hear dreams of Ivy League schools, first year college attendees, and professional careers. I encourage and celebrate their dreams with them because I know that they can achieve anything they put their minds to and work hard for!

My Project

These materials are essential to play an instrument and playing it well. A student can only perform quality music with quality materials. Most of the items we either don't have at all, or don't have enough of. Students struggle to buy and keep working reeds and having more on hand would be a life saver. The purpose of this project specifically is to purchase clarinet and saxophone ligatures, as well as reeds for those same instruments. Many students are not able to play and perform to their full potential because their ligatures are low quality and break easily, or because they can't afford to keep reeds. These are things that we have been going without for too long! This a great opportunity to make a positive difference in the life of a child.

My students work very hard to achieve all of the success stories that they have made so far, but I know that we can go even further with your help!
