My Students

I teach in a high poverty school in the Indianapolis area. 100% of my students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Even though my students face daily challenges outside of the classroom, they arrive each morning full of energy and ready to learn!

I strive to provide students with a nurturing environment while keeping them engaged and focused on growth.

My students are amazing and I absolutely love everything about first grade. DonorsChoose.org allows me to provide my first graders with additional opportunities to learn and have fun!

My Project

Students work hard and deserve a fun recess! When it is time to go outside, the class cheers with excitement, but when I announce we have to stay inside their demeanor changes.

Our recess games and materials are missing pieces and there is not much to choose from.

I want to provide my students with hands-on building kits and floor puzzles. These new materials will keep the students entertained on those rainy and cold mornings! Students will work together collaboratively to build and create new and exciting things daily. I want to hear cheers for both outdoor and indoor recess!
