My Students

My students are loving, caring, and eager to learn. They come from an area where money is tight. Every student of mine gets free breakfast and lunch provided to them at the school. Many students are in need of winter clothing items, which we get from many generous charities around us.

About half of my students are also new to the country; and are arriving with little to no English.

All of my students work hard to meet their educational goals and work together to make a great community.

My Project

I am a first-year teacher and bought many things originally for my classroom. As the year as gone by I've discovered some more things we are in need of. We have also run out or are running out of some items that are necessary for different lessons and projects we do as a class.

The fidget items will help the ADD/ADHD students that I have in class.

Hopefully with these items they will be able to sit and focus more.

We are a low income school and unfortunately many of the parents were not able to bring in some of those supplies that we tend to run out such as tissue, hand sanitizer, pencils, and dry erase markers.
