My Students

The elementary school that I work at is such a special place! Our students come to school each day ready to take on another day of learning. I am proud to say that every staff member at my school strives to provide the best place to learn for our students.

My goal is to create a school and classroom environment that is inviting, engaging, meaningful and full of passion!

My classroom is a safe place where learning is fun but adds meaning to their lives.

My students are the most enthusiastic group of students I have had yet. Each and every one of them brings something unique to our classroom. Thanks to your donations, I will continue to be able to do whatever I can to help my students succeed and move on to be successful members of society!

My Project

Imagine walking down a hallway and into a classroom that you aren't proud of...would you want to learn there? Probably not! Although tennis balls seem like such a small thing, they will help to keep our classrooms looking great! We want our students to take pride in their classroom so that they enjoy learning at Villa Heights!

Being able to learn in an environment that you are proud of makes a HUGE difference!

While we have some tennis balls on our chairs, our school is growing next year and this project will help to add to the new classrooms. Those tennis balls will help keep our shiny white floors shiny and white! Your donations will help to make our building something to be proud of.
