My Students

My students attend a school that has minimum resources outside of the state provided materials. They are often faced with obstacles most children have never faced. They are often faced with the harsh reality that their support stops once they exit the school building. I want my students to be prepared for the future, and they deserve to have the resources needed available to them.

Please help my students to become effective and motivated students that are prepared for their future.

My Project

We are requesting a toaster oven that students need in order to create a classroom environment conducive to real world knowledge, skills and experiences. In addition to covering many standards, cooking is an activity which provides a great opportunity for hands-on engagement and a wealth of fun for children. Cooking encourages children to explore a variety of foods, to experiment with properties of science, use language to share knowledge of foods all while creating good things to eat.

Children learn to cooperate, share, practice good manners and develop a sense of pride and accomplishment by making a finished product.

My students will use a toaster oven to create memories as well as learn and practice a variety of life skills that will prepare them for the many tasks they will face as they mature.
