My Students

Words cannot describe how excited I am to have my first classroom! Due to the fact this is my first year teaching, I am trying to grow and expand my resources!

Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with 100% of students receiving free breakfast and lunch.

My school is also one of the most ethnically diverse schools in the city, where students speak a multitude of languages. As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are diverse in their academics. Every day, I make sure to welcome my students with a smile on my face and in return, they exchange a smile back, ready to learn and succeed. Despite many hardships my students may face, they are eager and put in their best effort. They know that our classroom is never about a perfect outcome; it is instead about the risks and effort put forth. My students certainly deserve a successful and engaging classroom where they can become lifelong learners.

My Project

Dear donors. I am hoping to receive headphones for my classroom for all of my students. Currently I have Enough headphones for half of my class some of them have broken due to the use from the students. I am hoping to receive additional headphones so that all my students may have headphones to use with in the classroom. Students will benefit from headphones because it will allow them to become non distracted from their task and focus. Also I’m hoping to organize our classroom where students have chair pockets. These pockets will allow for students to store their work and also their materials they use in the classroom on a daily basis. This benefits students to become life long learners because organizing is an essential tool. Thank you so much for taking your time to look at our donors choose.
