My Students

Imagine moving to a new country. You haven't learned to read or write yet, and you have this smiling teacher talking to you in a language you don't understand. These are some of the students I teach every day. I teach in a middle school that services a wide variety of students, including recent immigrants and homeless students. We also have a high level of students who are part of the free breakfast and lunch program.

Despite hardships, most of my students are excited and eager to learn.

My curriculum doesn't just include reading and writing; we also look at relevant world and community events. My students work toward being productive and compassionate citizens of this technological age.

My Project

Do you remember the thrill of your first job and how proud you were of your first check? I would like to offer some students the opportunity to be hired for their first job working at our school store selling items making change, and practicing customer service skills.

Not only do they get a chance to work, but they get to develop skills that will be helpful in future employment.

Kids get to make change, add up prices, and practice customer service techniques. The items you help us purchase including chapstick, stress balls, pencil pouches and erasers will stock our school store and help to provide a practical and fun place for students to spend "Marley Money" which they earn for positive behaviors. Your donation will not only help us stock this store, but will ensure students gain practical work experience that will enable them to be confident and productive members of society.
