My Students

Hello! I absolutely love my job, and I owe a lot of that love to my amazing students. They continue to impress me day after day, and I want to be able to give them the best education possible.

My students are incredibly intelligent, highly self-motivated, and extremely eager to learn.

My diverse students attend a public magnet city school and come from a variety of neighborhoods throughout the city itself. They come from different walks of life and will benefit from any resources that I can provide. With your help, I can provide materials to foster a successful learning environment for my bright students who truly deserve the best education possible. Your generosity will immensely help! Thanks!

My Project

Every year, the students at my school are given the opportunity to read a summer reading novel. This year, we picked Elizabeth Acevedo's novel With Fire on High, a book that highlights the struggles of an Afro-Latina character. Help me get copies of this book so that I can encourage students to take part in our summer reading initiative with this diverse young adult novel!

Getting copies of With Fire on High will help ensure that my students have access to a new novel without the stress of acquiring it themselves.

Not only will my students have the option to read this book over the summer, but they will also have opportunities to read it throughout the school year, too!
