My Students

Hello I work at an Elementary School In South Side Chicago. I'm looking to make my classroom and extra special place for my students. Many of my students have several issues at home and need an escape when they get to school. Each and every one of my students needs a chance to succeed and currently the school board is not showing that they agree. All of my students come from low income families and have experienced some sort of tragedy in their short lives. They deserve to know that someone cares about their future.

My Project

My project continues to support my students emotionally. My students struggle with self-esteem and confidence because of home life. I want my classroom to be a place we're my students can escape and just focus on learning. I see so much potential in my class and I just want them to have a chance to succeed even though we don't have any funding. Thank you for your time and thank you for considering my class to donate to. Each and every one of my students will be forever thankful for the items they receive from this donor choose project! 😊
