My Students

I never thought that on the day of "the packets," which has become "a thing" in many districts, I would have my last opportunity to hug, high five, or provide matching dance moves to a young person I love dearly.

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated the very core of teaching in brick and mortar schools.

I want the opportunity to provide my students with books and a tablet they can use to make their life and learning easier at this difficult time.

My Project

These books will allow my students time to focus on more positive ways to change the world they will inherit. Reading takes you other places while forcing you to think critically about the world around you!

I want to give my students the opportunity for continuous growth to help them understand the significance of what it means to be a lifelong learner!

Students will use these books during class discussions on Zoom and, hopefully, utilize them to learn how to cook and go on other adventures in their homes!
