My Students

Over three quarters of the students in my district come from low income households. Almost 100% receive free and/or reduced breakfast and lunch.

With that, this year families were encouraged to use money for life necessities instead of school supplies.

My students hard working with big dreams and even bigger hearts, but they are short on supplies and need more materials to be successful in the classroom.

We would appreciate any and all assistance we can have in gathering more supplies and resources for learning. Thank you!

My Project

These materials will enhance the different modalities of teaching and learning in my classroom that I strive to create. With your help I can provide students with different ways record and store information using notebooks, folders and activities on printed paper in the areas of Math, Social Studies, and Science this year. With folders students will not only keep their learning organized, but they can use one folder to bring notes and forms to and from school. This will allow the school and parents to communicate in a more organized way. My students are very hardworking and these supplies will help them become more successful this year.
