My Students

My students are bright and full of energy. They have a variety of ethnic backgrounds, interests, and academic goals. Many of my students share residence with other family members. They live in the inner city, have community pride, and love to learn.

My students are ecstatic about learning, they love math, science and enjoy reading!

Our school has extended school hours with a dismissal time of 4:05. My students love school and it shows with our 98% attendance rate. Our school is a high-poverty, Title I school where 100% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunches. My students work hard every day. They support each other strengthening our community pride.

My Project

My students love, love, love to write on, draw on, and fold paper! We need a printer to keep them busy.

The joy my students have while discussing books and writing is amazing!

My students enjoy reading and writing. We need a printer to print writing prompts, engaging lessons resources, and fun activities. Educating my students at an early age about the importance of reading and writing will help students become effective writers. I also need a voice amplifier to assure students clearly hear instruction. Please give to our project. With your help, no longer will my students only be paper artists, but eager writers. Or possibly authors!
