My Students

Many students in my classroom come in saying they have difficulty completing practice assignments at home because of lack of supplies and resources. My students are book-loving, avid readers and enthusiastic learners. My students lack hands-on materials and nutritious snacks.

I want to do everything I can to boost their efforts through these tough times.

My Project

The shelter in place in Los Angeles has negatively impacted the community I serve. Many of my families must seek assistance from community charities to provide for their children.

My students need a variety of snacks and writing utensils to continue to achieve In their academic journey.

I am confident that my students will be delighted to have snacks and writing utensils as they practice remote learning. I can visualize them smiling as I teach them in my virtual classroom. The materials I am requesting will go directly to the children in need.
