My Students

My class is made up of amazing 6 and 7-year-old students. These boys and girls are hard-working and so very precious. Our relationship goes beyond just teacher and student. We are close, and these kids are like family to me.

Each year, I try to provide a new and exciting learning environment for my students.

We live on Kauai, and our sources are limited. With your help, I can make our classroom more inviting, and I can make learning more fun.

My Project

Aloha. Thanks to Donors like you, we have received a variety of really useful tools for our classroom. This has helped us have a more comfortable environment to learn in and it has made the learning way more fun and interesting. At this point, we are in need of just a few more things to get the year off to a perfect start. We are just a couple stools short of a complete set for our computer table. We are also just a few sets short of headphones, letters, and whiteboards.

These things will allow us to work and learn in small groups, with enough tools for everyone.
