My Students

I teach at a public middle school in Dallas. My first year of teaching was filled a plethora of highs and lows ranging from countless student success stories to tragic losses to our school family. I could not be more proud of my first year of students. They were all collectively brilliant and individually inspiring.

It will forever bother me that my students' successes are dictated by their accessibility to resources.

All of my kids are committed to growing and bettering their lives. I see this on a daily basis, yet we are all challenged in achieving these efforts because they don't have the supplies necessary to succeed in the classroom.

My Project

They need paper to read and write on. They need pencils to write with. They need folders for all the things they read and write on!

All my students really need is the guarantee that they will be provided the necessary materials and content by the teacher everyday.

If you help with providing these basic supplies for our classroom, it will honestly make a world of difference for these kids. So much is asked of from the teachers that affording all these supplies for the students gets really difficult at times. These kids need all the support that can be provided for them.
