My Students

In my seventh grade geography classroom, students discover and explore the world. They begin to develop an understanding of their role as global citizens and the influence they can have on their community.

The student makeup of my school is extremely diverse.

My school educates some of the highest percentages of African-American, Hmong and Latino students in the district. Many of our students come from economically challenged households. As close to seventy percent of our student body qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch. One out of five students is a special education learner.

I am honored to be able to educate these amazing students. They are thoughtful, creative and they work hard. They deserve the very best. I want their classroom to be a safe, fun and exciting environment in which to learn. I strive to make school feel like a second home. I want my classroom to look the way I make my students feel which is empowered, happy and creative.

My Project

Many of the materials that make up this project are consumables that are in great need of yearly replacement. Pencils, erasers, dry erase markers, tape, pens, stencils, and white out are used by students and teachers on mapping activities, research projects, classroom discussions, displaying student work, and in small group work.

The materials in this project are items that are used most frequently and are least likely to be brought with students when they start school in the fall.

Many families have a hard time affording school materials, and the fulfillment of this project will ensure that students have the essential materials to ensure their success.

Thank you for supporting public education!
