My Students

Many of my students face challenges in life due to poverty, unstable housing, and language barriers. Although life is not easy, my students are extremely positive, grateful, and happy children. Our school faces the same issues many other schools face in low socioeconomic areas. We strive to meet the basic needs of our students so they are successful in school. My students are amazing people. They are extremely motivated, positive, and honest.

"We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he/she is someone today." — Stacia Tauscher.

My Project

We need 9 chargers for our Lenova Thinkpads. There are extra Chromebooks available in our office that do not have chargers. A set of chargers would allow our students to fire up the computers and access to the technology currently collecting dust.

My students use computers to strengthen math skills, research science projects, write essays, read articles, and much more.

Access to more computers would allow students to hop on a computer when an idea needed to be investigated. Students would be able to practice basic math facts through interactive games and flash cards. My students enjoy fact finding, reading informative articles, and searching for the perfect image to insert into their writings.

We appreciate your support.
