My Students

Why are my students amazing? My students are amazing because many of them come from backgrounds that are challenging, but they never let it hold them down.

My students work hard at school, and that's why I work hard for them.

I make sure that state and city budgets don't limit my students' learning. I make sure that they get what they need to learn and to thrive in lessons big and small—and you are a big part of that!

My Project

This project will bring tons of great resources to our schoolyard for students to use every day at recess. We have over 800 students at our school, which means that we need a lot of resources for recess - regular sports equipment that make recess fun.

From four-square balls to soccer balls, jump ropes to footballs - this project will bring the fun back to recess.

We need to get our students in touch with fun, in touch with exercise, and in touch with working as a team. These resources will make recess a fun experience for every student - from pre-K to 8th grade.

Thank you for helping make every part of school meaningful for my students - they sure do deserve it.
