My Students

I am a teacher at a high school. My students qualify as 90% low income and come from predominantly Hispanic and Latino backgrounds. They are incredibly dedicated and intelligent individuals. They are motivated to further their own learning, and they are determined to come to school every day to become global citizens. I have students that participate in extracurriculars such as cheerleading, video gaming, robotics club, printmaking, and music. They are driven to be successful and to give back to their communities. Sometimes we struggle with attendance when the seasons begin to change and they become overworked and overwhelmed with their school work and classes. Otherwise, these are some of the most wonderful individuals you will ever have a chance to meet.

My Project

I’ve gone through two sharpeners and several manual staplers in the past seven years. In all fairness I think this is pretty good considering I’ve taught hundreds of students in that time. But, we need options that are more sturdy and to help us through the years to come.

Your donation would allow me to have a quality pencil sharpener for my students to use, as well as an electric stapler so they can staple their work.

With these basic school supplies I will be able to expedite the work turn in process and also prepare assignment quicker for them during my prep time.
