My Students

I work at a Title I school where 100% of my students receive free breakfast and lunch.

68% of the students in my building are homeless.

Even though my students face many hardships, they are so eager to learn new things.

The students in my classroom have a variety of ways that they learn best and have different amounts of academic experience. They have so much potential for learning and growth. My students come to school every day trying their best and knowing that someone believes in them.

My Project

These desks will be a life changer for my students.

Currently, my kinder kids are sitting at unsafe and unpredictable tables that are over crowded.

These desks will allow my students to spread out in the classroom and have their own personal work space. Please help me change the school lives of my students in order to give them a positive first year experience in the public school system. My students face so many hardships, it would be wonderful to be able to provide them with the same materials as more fortunate children get in other, better funded schools. Thank you!
