My Students

I pull small reading groups from 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. My students generally fall below average with​ respect to achievement but there is nothing average about them! Many of my students are English language learners and come from diverse backgrounds. My groups are a microcosm of the United Colors of Benetton.

My students enjoy reading texts that are culturally relevant and using hands-on activities to support their learning.

Every day is an adventure teaching and learning with them!

I have already told them about the possibility of being funded and they are hopeful and excited to receive the items!

My Project

I will be able to better​ prepare learning materials for the enrichment of my students with these donations.

I can not wait to color print task cards and laminate them for long term use!

Dry erase markers are a commodity in our classroom. They often grow legs while losing tops and drying out in a week's span. I also make anchor charts a few times a week and run out of easel paper constantly! Now I'll have several easels to last the school year.

I am so excited! My students are excited! I will be sure to tell other educators how to fund for their classrooms and students.
