My Students

My students are bright, funny, energetic and full of passion. Every day, I can't wait to see their smiles and hear their funny stories.

These students are hungry for knowledge but they face many struggles.

Because their families struggle financially, they often do not have enough food or the right sized shoes for school. Homework is challenging because many live in a single parent home or in foster care. There is a lot of crime in the nearby community, but I believe my students will rise above it with your help.

Please help these amazing little ones to have a brighter future.

My Project

Hello friends!

Please help my kids to have electric pencils sharpeners in the classroom.

This year, we don't yet have an electric sharpener in the class. Kids need sharp pencils and erasesers to start the day of right.

Our school is focusing on improving student writing so they can be college and career ready. The right tools include a good sharpener, pencils and erasers. Many students are often unable to afford their own, but you can help them out.

With your help, my students will have the right tools for their daily writing needs.

Thanks for your kindness and support.
