My Students

My students are from the inner city and are mostly English language learners from low-income homes. They are hard-working, respectful, self-motivated young people who are eager to learn! Our school is a pilot school where students, teachers, parents, administrators, and community members work together to create the best learning environment possible.

The school's philosophy focuses on social justice and leadership skills with an emphasis on critical thinking, 21st-century skills, and college.

We constantly are trying to find ways to be creative with the resources we have, but basic school supplies and books are what we need most at our school.

My Project

These materials will make a great difference in my student's learning and improve their school lives. Resources and supplies are very low at my school. We rely on Donors Choose to supplement many things we need in our classroom.

We have introduced Readers Workshop and Writers Workshop to students in the past year and we need to support those programs.

The printer ink will allow students to print out writing assignments and comprehension activities. The books will be used in novel study and for "just right" books. The prizes will be given for student achievement and as rewards for doing their personal best.
