My Students

I teach in a Tier-1 school with the majority of the students being labeled “At-Risk” with minimal to no resources at home and low income. My students show perseverance despite their hardships at home and make it known that the classroom is their favorite place to be. They are eager to learn and hungry for new experiences they may not receive outside school. They are hands-on learners and unique in every single way. They never fail to brighten my day!

My Project

My school is a Tier 1 school with limited funding so most supplies are purchased out of pocket by teachers. Our school has 2 semi-working printers for about 1200 students and it’s always a bummer when you can’t even make a master copy for the week’s activities. We have 1 laminating machine which is almost always out of laminating paper which makes the durability of work stations almost impossible, having to reprint and waste paper. If my project gets funded, I’ll be able to better supply my leaders of tomorrow with the resources they need for more engaging activities to promote retention. When my students are hands-on in class, it promotes socialization and engagement and minimizes misbehavior and lack of focus. Please help me get the supplies needed to prep my scholars to be successful!
