My Students

I teach in a low-income/high poverty school district; my students face several challenges in and out of the classroom. Despite these challenges, I am thrilled to provide my students with quality learning experiences, ones that they will never forget.

When my kindergarten students walk through my classroom door, some often come to school brimming over with enthusiasm and excitement for learning!

Their enthusiasm for school life can be exhausting but infectious and teaching them is an exciting and joyful experience!

My Project

I am requesting basic supplies for my classroom including crayons, markers, and colored pencils. My students LOVE to draw pictures and are so engaged and excited to learn. They go through a lot of these supplies through out the year. Now, I am running low!

I have spent all the resources I have had available on my students throughout the year and I am now wiped clean.

I want the very best for all my students. I want to be able to give them the world. I love them to pieces!

I am requesting these basic supplies so that my students will continue to write, color and draw. We use the crayons to create beautiful art projects. We use the markers to express ourselves. We use the colored pencils to create sketches!
