My Students

My students are so sweet and amazing! They are all unique in their own special way. They attend a Chicago public school located in the Back of the Yards community. They come to school enthusiastic to learn new things. Their parents want to be part of their education and are always offering their time to volunteer. Partnering up with families has become a goal of mine because it makes a difference. As their teacher, I want to teach them that education breaks barriers. I also want them to have as many learning experiences as possible in a positive, safe, and welcoming environment. Thank you for considering our project.

My Project

My students have worked hard all year long preparing for third grade all they need now is school supplies to be successful. They have picked their favorite backpack and also the school supplies. I'm requesting a backpack for each of my students, folders, pencils, paper, glue, erasers and highlighters.

My students will not only be ready academically but will have the supplies necessary to be successful in third grade.

They will each have their very own packed backpack, two folders, pencils, highlighters, glue, erasers, and paper. Can you imagine how stressful it can be on the first day of class? Having these school supplies will help ease the stress for them and their families.

My students are very grateful for your kindness.
