My Students

I have the most amazing students in my classroom. They face so many obstacles in and out of the classroom. However, they have such positive attitudes and big smiles on their faces when they enter the classroom every day.

I make each one of them feel special every day.

For many, school is the only place they will receive meals and a warm loving environment. I try to make school a place they want to come to every single day, so they are excited about it!

My Project

My students need pencils and erasers to complete assignments, projects, and homework. These pencils will allow them to come to class ready to learn and not worry about what they are going to write with.

Our low income school has a limited number of supplies and they run out quickly.

Also, it would be a tremendous relief to the students if they were able to take some pencils home so they did not have to be concerned about writing supplies at home.

Please consider helping my students with these basic supplies. We need pencils to write, learn, create, and explore!
