My Students

My students are creative, enthusiastic, activity-driven, hands-on children who love to learn through creative processes. My students are from low-income communities and have little access to technology that allows them to express their creativity.

My enthusiastic, activity-driven, hands-on, creative students thirst to learn new things and to be involved in researching and implementation.

My students also want to share kindness efforts to the surrounding communities. They are curious and love to learn. With little access to inspiration outside of their neighborhoods, every opportunity helps them dream, learn, and grow. While in their communities, they want to share kindness and be an inspiration themselves.

My Project

The students in my class continually amaze me with their creativity, kindness, and tenacity. They are also from a low-income community and have little access to technology that will benefit and enhance their creativity. They also are creating a kindness initiative to share acts of kindness with the community.

I am asking for a Cricut Maker Bundle plus accessories for my classroom and students.

The Cricut can literally make thousands of different projects. With the right tools, my students' creativity and kindness efforts will be endless. The right tools in the case of my class are the Cricut Machine, Cricut papers and tools, and Cricut pieces for the machine.

With the creativity and thoughtfulness of my students, the projects that they create with the Cricut Maker will be amazing! I can already see myself jumping up for joy with the ideas that they will come up with. The outreach benefits for surrounding neighborhoods will be priceless. My students will be able to make projects for the senior citizen center across the street and the people who live around us. And, the benefits of the students continuing to become thoughtful, kind, empathetic citizens and people are priceless!

Please help my students in their creative and kindness processes and efforts.
