My students need pencils. A teacher can never have too many.

My Students

I have students who come from all kinds of backgrounds. They range anywhere from grade levels behind in their education to achieving far above grade level.

They come from troubled and unsafe neighborhoods.

Whatever their backgrounds, they still find the motivation to come to school every day because they know education is the key to their futures. Whether they choose to go to college or a trade school, I will help them to get there.

I want them to be able to reach those expectations that I have for them and they have set for themselves.

My Project

I have students who come from all kinds of backgrounds. They range anywhere from grade levels behind in their education to achieving far above grade level.

Some come from very affluent homes and others live in poverty.

For many of them, their families struggle to put food on the table for more than one meal a day. If we can provide the basic necessities for an education, like pencils, that is one way that students may not feel out of place or like they don't fit in with their peers.

Hopefully, these pencils, in addition to teaching students organizational skills, will better prepare them for their futures.
